At the request of several residents, the Village of Westhampton Beach is looking to reduce the speed limit on four area roads — Rogers Avenue, Rogers Avenue Ext., Hazelwood Avenue and Bridle Path.
According to Rebecca Molinaro, village clerk, the move comes after a November meeting in which residents of Rogers Avenue complained of speeding.
"The village police put the speed trailer down there and found that the majority of motorists were traveling the speed limit, which is 35 miles per hour," she said.
However, to slow traffic on the residential streets, Molinaro said the board has opted to reduce the speed limit from 35 to 25.
A public hearing was held on Jan. 3, however, Molinaro said no village residents stood to spoke on the proposal so the board voted to extend the hearing to Jan. 23 at 7 p.m.
