PROVINCETOWN — Standish Street homeowner Tracy Kachtick-Anders brought proposals to the town’s annual traffic hearing on Nov. 1 after experiencing problems with drivers around the CVS drugstore at the end of her street. 

Kachtick-Anders proposed a driving outlet from Standish Street to Bradford Street for people parking at CVS. She asked for a parking attendant at CVS and the installation of speed bumps on Standish Street, from Bradford Street to Cemetery Road. She also asked for a traffic officer during high season at the corner of Bradford and Standish streets.   

Katchtick-Anders got some of what she wanted — a dedicated police officer at that intersection; a town team to work with CVS to put up one-way signs on the CVS building; and a plan for the police to conduct a study of the traffic patterns at that intersection from Nov. 15 through March.

Posting an officer at the Bradford and Standish intersection seasonally could cost between $16,000 and $22,000 a year, and a decision could be made at upcoming town budget hearings, according to comments made at the Nov. 1 hearing.
