The Trussville City Council on Tuesday approved a resolution to remove the stop signs on North Lake Drive at the entrance to Camp Coleman.
According to the resolution, the resting of Camp Coleman in May reduced the amount of traffic through the adjoining neighborhood and negated the need for the stop signs on North Lake Drive at the entrance to the Girl Scouts camp.
The city council determined that the removal of these signs “will not adversely affect public safety, and further finds that, with the closing of Camp Coleman, the stop sign no longer serves a reasonable traffic control purpose,” according to the resolution.
Operated since 1925, Camp Coleman is the longest continuously operating Girl Scouts camp in the state of Alabama. It was rested May 31 instead of closed permanently. The 140-acre camp sits along the Cahaba River in Trussville.
