Baxter looks at traffic safety, driveway placement in access management


BAXTER — Managing access with land development has the city of Baxter considering traffic flow on main streets, driveway placement and safety.

Staff determined the zoning ordinance and subdivision regulations have access related requirements but not a management plan.
