Babylon Village is, without a doubt, one of the best places to work, live and grow up with its safe surroundings, great schools and beautiful businesses. We asked readers earlier this week how Babylon Village could take it one step further and improve even more in the new year.
Here are some of the ideas readers like you gave:
"I would enforce more of the laws that are in effect - for example, there is no overnight parking," wrote Debl, who noted their development looks like a used car lot much of the time. "I can understand when guests are over or a party is being held - but when the house is dark and there is no party going on – there should be no cars parked on the street, period!"
They added: "I personally almost got hit by an oncoming car because there were cars parked on both sides of the street and no where to go - streets are for driving, not parking."
Other readers echoed these thoughts on traffic and parking village-wide.
"Update the signs for parking," suggested Bob Kinnear. "Its only after you get a ticket that attention is brought to you. In general , the obvious ticketing of cars for the coffers of the village. I'm really starting to believe that it is a form of entrapment. The signs should be placed at the meters when you go to pay, this way all can see them."
Another reader, going simply by Paul suggested more traffic enforcement due to speeders within the village as well as a closer eye on the sanitation department.
"The garbage men are great, but a few of them need to be watched," he wrote. "Look around after Monday pick up and the cans are thrown all over and the amount of garbage that is all over our roads is inexcusable."
