COLUMBIA CITY — As traffic at Eagle Tech Academy continues to increase, concerns have been raised regarding the alley south of the building.
“We’ve had complaints of some close-calls,” Columbia City Police Chief Tim Longenbaugh said. “As time goes on, there’s been more and more people at the school using the alley.”
The alley, which runs between Walnut and Elm Streets, is marked as “one-way,” but is not defined in the city’s ordinance.
“There’s a one-way sign posted on Walnut Street, and a ‘do not enter’ sign on the other side,” Longenbaugh said. “But we can’t enforce that if it’s not in the ordinance.”
Longenbaugh said the school has asked police to help enforce the area, so he requested the council change the ordinance to include the one-way alley.
