1.) Birch Bay Drive 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: --- 25 mph year round from Holeman Avenue in the south to South Birch Point Loop Road in the north.
2.) Birch Bay Drive --- 30 mph year round from South Birch Point Loop Road to the intersection of Birch Point Road.
3) Birch Point Road --- 35 mph from the new intersection to the current 45 mph sign past the BB Village gate
4) Shintaffer Road --- 25 mph year round from Birch Bay Drive to Anderson Road.
5) Anderson Road --- 25 mph year round from Shintaffer to Harborview
6) Harborview Road --- 25 mph year round from Birch Bay Drive to Forsberg Drive.
7) Alderson Road --- 25 mph year round from Birch Bay Drive to E. Loft Lane.
8) Jackson Road --- 25 mph year round from Birch Bay Drive to Bay Road.
