Greetings City of Naperville Leaders,
Re: VACATE HAWKWEED DRIVE IN PROPOSED PULTE DEVELOPMENT
South Pointe and High Meadow neighborhoods in South Naperville embody thousands of young adult residents with a significant Child population. South Pointe and High Meadow Families want to maintain our Children’s safe surroundings!
It is our concern that if the City of Naperville decides to approve the Pulte Development proposal, that South Pointe and High Meadow will in fact become a high-volume relief valve for lack of infrastructure today at Rt. 59 and 119th St.
With no proper arterial roads available to the proposed Pulte development, South Pointe and High Meadow's interior roads and their main entry/exit roads (which today are next to the very busy and thriving Graham Elementary school) will no longer be a safe place for kids to play and bike. South Pointe Pool at Champion Rd. and the South Pointe Park will be steps from a new influx of dangerous cut-through traffic coming to/from Hawkweed.
We respectfully request that prior to any annex consideration by our City Council that Hawkweed Drive be vacated at Polo and an EV accessible Cul-de-sac constructed. Temporary Only Closure is not a sustainable option for our Kids.
We urge the City to thoughtfully review what seemingly small adjustments in road access could do to entire neighborhoods as traffic will always adjust to take the path of least resistance. In the case of the proposed Pulte development, potential future residents and transient 119th travelers will quickly realize the easiest way in and out is to avoid gridlock at Rt. 59 and 119th and instead cut through High Meadow, to South Pointe, to their Pulte home.
