Cars will continue to legally drive 35 mph on Green Bay Road after this week’s City Council decision to keep the speed limit the same.

All present members voted no at the Monday, March 12 meeting. Councilwoman Michelle Holleman and Mayor Nancy Rotering were not present. 

This issue came to light when Matthew Vanderkooy, who moved to the area around Green Bay Road in June 2017, felt people were driving too fast for comfort, The Landmark reported in January.

He immediately got to work trying to make the neighborhood safer for his two children under the age of five.
