Butler, Augustine, and Best Attend Truck Traffic Meeting

Nearly 100 people attended a meeting at the Smith Opera House about Route 14 truck traffic. They'd come to discuss the results of an independent consultant's study of the issue. “The road is not built for these trucks; the houses are not built for these trucks,” said Dean of Hobart College Clarence Butler, of South Main Street, and noted that when he lays in bed at night he often worries about “trucks causing pictures on my wall to rattle.” Others agreed, including 1st Ward City Councilor Jacqueline Augustine ’99, who favors designating Route 14 a scenic byway, an appellation that would mean no truck traffic. Sharon Best ’62 also attended the meeting. The story “Truck traffic meeting draws big crowd” was in the June 19 Finger Lakes Times.
