This is a list of all of the short-term and long-term solutions that were presented at the December 4th Traffic Meeting. Short-term solutions are those that could be implemented at little cost. Long-term solutions would require more money, more involvement of other governmental agencies, and more study. If you would like to comment on any of these, please send your comments to Tom Menicucci at, in the next week or two.
