For MCDOT information on the project:
Whether you live on Fleming Road or nearby, or maybe are one of the people who drive Fleming Road and enjoy its scenic beauty and tranquility, we are glad you have joined this mailing list.
We want to share those ideas with you and we would like to hear yours.
We are developing a list of those unanswered questions and are trying to set up a meeting with Wally Dittrich, from the McHenry County Division of Transportation to get more information.
If you have questions for the Transportation Division, please forward them to us for the list. Use this address FlemingRoadAlliance@gmail.com.
The signs were taken down by the generous volunteer who made and put them up, and were replaced this weekend with new signs containing this email address so more people can sign up.
We thought to keep the signs fresh they should come and go throughout this campaign. If you want one in your yard, please email us your address and we will make sure you get one. If you have a catchy phrase idea for the next round of signs, please let us know that too.
We also are hoping one of you can set up and manage a web site for us. If you have that ability and want to help, a web site will really increase our visibility and access, and generate support across the county and beyond.
Enjoy the views with spring greening up and the daffodils coming up, and wave to people as you pass.
When the road traffic is slow, transportation division is more inclined to lower speed limits (rather than raise them).
And last of all, if you want to volunteer to help there are things you can do.
We think its important to have one or two people on a rotating basis to attend Transportation Division regular meetings to get to know who we will be dealing with. These meetings are at 8:15 on the first and third Wednesday of each month. (April 7 and 21).
MCDOT has a tentative schedule of Fleming Road meetings coming up that we hope you will be able to turn out for in large numbers.
Constant contact with the Transportation Division will be important to keep the information flow both ways.
At some point we will probably need a letter writing campaign to the news media, and calls and attendance at other County meetings.
Any other ideas are welcome too; there are surely things we have not thought of.
The number of people who turned out for the open house says that there are a lot of you wanting to work on this. We want to hear from you.
