The Oakland Town Commission discussed a plan to install stop signs at the West Orange Trail at its April 12 meeting. 

The town has been working for more than a year with Myra Planning and Design LLC to study the existing traffic control measures at trail roads that currently don’t have stop signs installed. The streets being considered and studied to implement the stop signs as safety measure include Cross, Daniels, Nixon, Pollard, Walker, Arrington and Starr streets. 

All town commissioners support the initiative. However, they will discuss it again at the town’s next meeting April 26.  

Three more trail intersections are pending consideration for stop signs installation as further study of traffic patterns is conducted. These include Jefferson Street, Machete Trail and Hull Island Drive.



The Briley Farms rezone ordinance was tabled to a future date to be determined.

The developer of the property submitted modifications on the same day of the town meeting. 

According to the Town Clerk Elise Hui, one parcel was added to the property and one change of ownership took place.

The town now must re-advertise the ordinance before bringing it to public hearing again.
