Suggestions and options for addressing public safety concerns along Old Stage Road were discussed during a Neighborhood Meeting Thursday, Oct. 6 at Cheyenne Mountain Junior High, 1200 W. Cheyenne Road.
One option discussed during the meeting was consideration of installing a time activated gate on Old Stage Road to replace the existing gate located just past the hairpin turn where the road surface changes from pavement to gravel. The area for the proposed new gate would be located just above the mailbox turnaround on the City’s asphalt property. The gate would remain open during the day and be closed one way only (heading west on Old Stage Road) in the late evening through the early morning hours.
Other suggestions/options for addressing the public safety concerns along Old Stage Road discussed during the meeting included increased security and additional signage.
The City is continuing to review and analyze the input received to date on all suggestions made by the public as well as on several aspects of the proposed gate including how it would function, hours of access and restricted access, how property owners and their authorized guests as well as road users would gain access/egress, monitoring, and other aspects.
No timeline has been set for the City to complete its review and analysis of how to best address public safety concerns along Old Stage Road or for implementing any of the proposed safety improvement measures.
