Description

Traffic traveling southbound on Farmhouse Dr. do not have a stop sign or even a yield before turning onto Heberton (there is a stop sign if turning onto Farmhouse from Heberton). This is dangerous for the following reasons:
1) Southbound on Farmhouse Dr is a steep downhill so cars tend to be driving quickly by the time they reach Heberton. They additionally accelerate to climb Heberton.
2) there is limited visibility because of a hill and trees
3) Many pedestrians use Farmhouse Dr. to get to the Reservoir but there is no functional sidewalk at this location so they are in the street.
4) Pedestrians also use the pathway between Heberton and Sheridan - this path leads downhill *directly* into Heberton, right where the visibility is the worst and where cars are often traveling the fastest.
5) There are at least four young children under the age of 4 within three houses of this intersection, and dozens more within a block or two.

The worst part is that this stop sign was removed approximately two years ago (we were away at the time). I cannot conceive of a reason to remove it; I hope tragedy is not the reason it is replaced.
