We have 6 or 7 people who are interested in being block captains. We will discuss it at our January Annual Board Meeting.

83rd Street Speed Study
Residents who live on 83rd Street were concerned that the speed limit was changed from 25 miles per hour to 30 miles per hour. A group of residents would like the Oak Hill Board Members to go to the city about the study. The board made a decision not to contact the city. The board will support the residents if they wanted to form a committee.
Ryan contacted Amy Slater with the Lenexa City Council. She told Ryan that the City of Lenexa did a speed study from 83rd Street from Lackman to Pflumm on 10-26-11. Amy said if we desire to formally express a position in venue, anyone is welcome to come voice their position at the City Council meeting the 1st
or 3rd Tuesday of the month when there is Business from the floor.
