The West Chester Borough Council Public Safety Committee recommended that the borough move forward with constructing “Quiet Zone” signs in the neighborhoods surrounding West Chester University.
The proposal calls for 240 signs to be distributed among some 60 blocks primarily in the southeast quadrant of the borough.
The program will cost the borough an estimated $4,230.
“It will be a good part of the education process,” said borough council and committee member Jordan Norley. “Hopefully it will help keep some of the behavior in check.”
The signs themselves will read: “Quiet Zone 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. minimum fine $250.”
Borough Council will vote on whether or not to build the signs at the borough council work session meeting scheduled for Feb. 19, at 7 p.m.
