Constellation Films Advertisement in Glyndon

  • May 22, 2011 1:07 pm

Constellation Energy will be filming an advertisement on Glyndon Avenue on May 23 and 24.

The Glyndon Community Association’s water pipe project task force has coordinated with the County and the film production crew to make sure the two efforts do not conflict.

The 80-member film crew will park at Glyndon United Methodist Church and  Glyndon Village Center. The film production crew will have several local college students in safety vests as well as an off-duty policeman making sure parking goes smoothly and the actors find their way to the shoot.

The crew also has promised to scheduling loading and unloading so as not to conflict with the water pipe construction.

Police Traffic Update

A note from Kate Bullock

The Franklin Precinct has reported on their first 30 day traffic Enforcement Zone in Glyndon. While the Precinct reported being surprised by the results, Glyndon residents will not be surprised.

Traffic monitoring occurred on 18 of the 30 days. Measured against limited resources, Glyndon received double the response that would normally be devoted to most traffic complaints.

  • 43 Citations have been issued (not broken down by traffic offense)
  • 32 Warnings have been issued (not broken down by traffic offense)
  • 1 Arrest has been made for driving on a suspended license
  • 1 Overweight vehicle has been towed due to the number of
    prior offenses

Of particular significance to the Precinct, were the number of overweight trucks.

This represents such a high volume of traffic offenses, that the Franklin Precinct will continue to monitor what they recognize as a significant traffic problem. The Precinct’s objective is to change driving behavior. If they are successful, this will not only create a safer situation during construction, but will have a long term impact on overall traffic safety for Glyndon.

We can all be greatly appreciative of the efforts being made by the Franklin Precinct.
