City officials to discuss south campus yield signs

May 4, 2015 7:31 PM by News Staff

The Chico City Council will decide Tuesday night whether or not they should consider replacing a collection of yield signs near Chico State's campus with stop signs.

Councilmember Andrew Coolidge has asked that the item be discussed at Tuesday night's meeting. Coolidge says after years of minor collisions at these intersections, and a recent fatality, it is time to replace the yield signs with stop signs.

In late March, 21-year-old Chico State senior Nick Klein was struck and killed by a car at the intersection of Hazel and 7th Streets. In the days following Klein's death more than 1,200 Chico State students signed an online petition calling for change on the south campus streets.

The Chico City Council meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday inside the council chambers.
