John Taylor reported that he had been approached from several residents about the speeding and the parking along Spring House Lane and Village Green Lane. Mr. Taylor reported that the current speed limit is not posted but it appears that Spring House is 35 mph and if there is an ordinance in effect but not enforced that there is No Parking on the west side of Spring House Lane from Reliance Road to Telford Hills Condominium.
