Keedysville SR 34 Safety Concerns: Click here to sign the petition today.

Resident Christy Postell has created a petition to give voice to concerns many residents share about the safety of intersections at SR 34 in Keedysville. Her proposal and request is that the heavy traffic intersection of Coffman Farms Road and Shepherdstown Pike be changed to a double line, no passing zone, and that the State would consider additional measures as appropriate to slow traffic. Bonnie Hawker, owner of the Red Byrd, has also seen many bad accidents at Taylor Dr, and asks the State Highway Dept to make it a no passing zone for the same reasons. Keedysville’s Mayor and Council fully support these changes and have been trying to persuade the State for many years. Add your name to the petition today!

Know Your Utility Locations

During winter, all residents should consider where some important pieces to the utilities are located on their property. Specifically, everyone should know where their water meter, their sewer grinder pump and their sewer clean out are located and they may want to mark each of them with a stake. Should there be a snow fall that covers these components and one of them malfunctions, having them clearly marked with a stake will enable the utility workers to find and repair the problem more quickly. Please consider taking a few minutes and marking each of these components with a stake. If you have any questions, please contact Keedysville Town Hall at 301-432-5795, Monday-Friday, 8:00am to 2:00pm.
