Stat. §§ 349.11(1) and (3)(c). The speed reduction found in this section is based upon a traffic engineering study showing a percentage of drivers exceeding the posted limit. Additionally, said speed reduction adjoins lands adjacent to the Town roads that are zoned as park land on one side of the road with lake frontage and a sailing school for minor children on the opposite side of the Town road.

2.    The aforementioned section changes reduce the speed limit on St. Peters Road between County Trunk Highway “ES” at its intersection with Townline Road from 45 miles per hour to 35 miles per hour. This speed reduction is based upon the Town Board’s finding that said area has a sufficient number of residences and safety concerns so as to require a lesser speed, the same constituting a semi-urban speed zone.
