CUMMING, Ga. — At its March 19 regular meeting, the Cumming Council voted unanimously to begin a traffic study to address concerns by Ridgecrest Avenue and Brooks Farm Road.

The residents had submitted a petition last month that called for traffic calming devices such as speed humps installed. The neighbors say motorists speed through the residential street to cut between Pilgrim Mill and Dahlonega Street (Ga.9).

The traffic study will be conducted by engineering firm Moreland-Altobelli at a cost of $12,400.

The engineering firm will also provide alternative solutions.

"It's an overall area traffic study," Mayor H. Ford Gravitt said. "It will also be giving us alternatives for where the traffic goes from that area."

The study could be completed by May.

In other business Council approved changes to the alcohol law that would allow vendors and other license holders to hold wine tastings and special events after they obtain a permit.

"It's going to be legal now, in the past this was not legal," Gravitt said.

Cumming Police Chief Casey Tatum said the law will also mimic the hours the county allows for special license events to take place.

"Now as far as when you are serving alcohol they will be exactly the same," Tatum said. "A lot of it matches with the county, so it's not such a drastic change."
