Slow down in Itch-Kep-Pe

Thursday, May 16, 2019

I would first like to thank the City of Columbus for providing the peaceful and tranquil park/campground known as Itch-Kep-Pe Park along the Yellowstone River. I have been camping here every year (sometimes more) since 2015.

My concern is the excessive speeding through the park. The speed limit is 15 mph, but people regularly travel at two or three times that posted speed. It is a dangerous situation as there are many children and pets among the campers.

I have notified the Columbus Police Department and they stated they will “beef up” patrol. Possibly the city can install speed bumps or have a radar sign posted so people can realize how fast they are going.

Thank you for reading my opinion and lets all be safe this summer.
