I kicked off my “Keep Preskitt, Preskitt Drive Friendly” in January.
As a long-time Prescott resident, I remember a time of less traffic and fewer congested streets — a time when drivers waved to each other in passing, obeyed the speed limits and were genuinely courteous drivers to one another, as well as pedestrians on the streets of Prescott.
With so many new people moving into our community to enjoy the small-town friendly atmosphere Prescott is known for, they seem to forget that Prescott’s streets were not originally made to handle the influx of new residents and increased traffic.
Most of the new residents who have moved to Prescott are used to multilane streets and high speed limits to get them from their homes to their destinations, something that is not the case in Prescott.
So, as a friendly reminder to all the residents of Prescott and the surrounding communities, let’s all make a conscious effort to slow down.
Let’s be courteous to one another and “Keep Preskitt, Preskitt Drive Friendly.” Let’s preserve the small-town friendly atmosphere that long-time residents have enjoyed and why new residents move here.
