Rochester’s Country Club Manor residents are being asked to weigh in on options to calm neighborhood traffic.

Residents of the area asked the city to consider addressing neighborhood traffic concerns, and a 2017 traffic study reportedly confirmed many vehicles exceed the speed limit near two parks and Harriet Bishop Elementary School.

The prime area of focus for potential changes is Manor Park Drive Northwest, Third Street Northwest and 36th Avenue Northwest, but other streets in the neighborhood could also be considered for changes.

A pair of hourlong virtual open houses are scheduled for noon and 6:30 p.m. Dec. 2.

Connection details for the meetings are:
