According to member feedback, Christ the King Catholic School parents seems to be contributing to the problem as they motor into the neighborhood, drop off their plaid-clad kiddies and then speed through the neighborhood in their exit. Another example of how car-oriented churches and parochial schools get away with acting like occupying forces rather than Christ-like good neighbors?

In a letter published on the District 17 email list, Belmont-Hillsboro Neighbors President Tracy Patterson writes that the neighborhood association has been trying to persuade Metro Public Works for over a year and a half to employ a traffic management program to slow down speeders, enhance pedestrian safety, and guard the bike lanes on Belmont Boulevard, but MPW has been unresponsive. In May 2007 BHN applied with Public Works for traffic calming, but the only changes MPW seems to have made were areas around Belmont University for the sake of its October presidential debate. Public Works seems even to be ignoring requests from the neighborhood's CM, Keith Durbin.
