What can we do about the excessive speeding up and down Main St in Medford Village. Also, have you noticed the number of rentals that are ruining beautiful Main St? It is pretty sad when Collingswood Main St is looking a lot better than Medford's. I live on Main St and am VERY concerned about the speeding, the honking, and some of the DEPLORABLE rental houses that line an otherwise great street.

Good points. Well, you've got to be crazy to speed around Medford. The police are fairly efficient at catching speeders... normally. I see speeders pulled over all the time. If you contact them and describe the problem, I'm sure they'll help you address the issue.

Medford residents should pay special attention to the crosswalks on Main Street - you need to slow down to make sure there aren't any pedestrians trying to cross, and if there are, stop and let them cross.

I'm not sure what you mean by rentals ruining Main Street. Are these rentals run down? I live at the other end of town, and I don't recall seeing anything noticeable.

Take a slow drive down Main street and look at some of the rental properties and you will see the horrible condition most of them are in. Especially on the South side of Main St. As far as the police stopping speeders- that does not happen on Main St. I live there. I see and hear cars driving well over the posted 35mph limit all the time.
Take a drive ove rin Collingswood. They got it right. Their Main St is what Medford's should be. We are friends with the owners of the Iris in and they have voiced the same concerns.

Being a Rental Resident myself, I see nothing wrong with there being rental properties on Main Street.

I do understand that some are not looking pretty and there is no reason for it. Since these are rentals, it is not up to the tenant to fix or "Make Pretty" the houses, it is up to the Owner/Landlord. Maybe there is a way to get them to fix-up their properties.

Medford is a wonderful city and known for being Beautiful. We do need to make sure that every property owner keeps up with their homes.
