Cherokee County OKs speed humps in subdivision

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners has approved installing four speed humps on Grandmar Chase in the Woodmont subdivision east of Canton.

The humps will be installed on Grandmar near its intersection with Curtis Road, according to a report to commissioners by Public Works Director Geoffrey E. Morton. Two studies showed most vehicles traveling well above the posted speed limit of 25 mph.

County policy in this instance required 70 percent approval of property owners, and 77 percent signed the petition calling for speed humps.

The homeowners association, the Woodmont Golf and Country Club Community Association, also supported the request, saying in a letter to the county, “These four speed tables are desirable and necessary to calm the traffic on this portion of Grandmar Chase as demonstrated by the recent speed study.”
