Brookfield Trustee Dan Suttles’ second neighborhood meeting May 26 – held at Warren Sharon Road and Kimberly Street – attracted more than 20 people who wanted to talk about speeding, stop signs, property maintenance, zoning and storm sewers.
Ed Marmion said some of the storm sewers on Warren Sharon Road and Cleveland and Lucy streets are above the level of the pavement, so rain water passes them by.
Kayla Cash complained about speeding on Warren Sharon and asked if a stop sign or some other traffic control device could be put up to slow drivers.
Suttles took addresses of properties where the grass has not been cut, and the names of streets where on-street parking interrupts mail delivery.
He said he would address each issue with the proper authority.
In response to a question on zoning, Suttles said he supports it, but wants the run up to a November referendum to have open dialogue.
“I think zoning is a good thing, but I also see both sides of it, and I want to hear both sides,” he said.
Cash said she learned a lot and encouraged others to attend these meetings, which Suttles said he plans to hold monthly during good weather.

What Brookfield needs is to build a home for the elderly. We have many elderly that could use this. The trustees talked about this for years but never acted on it. It’s time for them to work on it.
