COLUMBIA CITY â As traffic at Eagle Tech Academy continues to increase, concerns have been raised regarding the alley south of the building.
âWeâve had complaints of some close-calls,â Columbia City Police Chief Tim Longenbaugh said. âAs time goes on, thereâs been more and more people at the school using the alley.â
The alley, which runs between Walnut and Elm Streets, is marked as âone-way,â but is not defined in the cityâs ordinance.
âThereâs a one-way sign posted on Walnut Street, and a âdo not enterâ sign on the other side,â Longenbaugh said. âBut we canât enforce that if itâs not in the ordinance.â
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.
