STATE DOT SAYS "NO" TO SPEED ZONE REQUEST FROM ROUTE 72 NEIGHBORHOOD--Potsdam Town Supervisor Marie Regan told the Town Council this week the Town's lobbying of the agency, bolstered by a petition from over 50 residents of the Stafford's Corners neighborhood, was unsuccessful in getting a reduced speed along the highway in that stretch. Regan says "We did our best." A letter from the DOT says an assessment of the average speeds in the area did not merit a reduction. Neighborhood residents called for a speed zone in response to numerous accidents--one fatal--in the area last year.
