The Transportation/Public Safety Implementation sub-committee met with Sheriff Elfo and Deputy Langley in March 2008 and the committee decided  that public safety issues on Birch Bay Drive warrant a discussion of a year round speed limit.  In an effort to move that discussion forward, a task force was formed with members from all neighborhoods to address the concerns and determine the larger communities interest in speed limit revisions. Recommendations from the Speed Limit Task Force are as follows:
