More traffic officers, more signs, more street painting and additional monitoring cameras are all short-term fixes suggested by the Edgartown planning board for the traffic issues created by the long line of vehicles waiting to board the Chappaquiddick ferry on busy summer days.

Planning board members made the recommendations at the selectmen’s Monday meeting.

Simpson’s Lane residents say the traffic on their street blocks driveways and limits access to their homes.

Chairman Michael Donaroma noted a number of the recommendations are already in the works, but that did not completely satisfy one resident of the narrow roadway.

“Hopefully the neighbors can continue to work with us,” Mr. Donaroma said.

“We’re not going to continue for long,” warned Dudley Cannada, who owns properties at 44 and 50 North Water street which have driveways on Simpson’s Lane. “We don’t see a real solution here. We’re stuck in our houses sometimes for 30 or 40 minutes. We’re not going to have patience any more.”

Planning board chairman Michael McCourt said his board held four public hearings, and came up with some high priority recommendations, including putting two traffic officers on Simpson’s Lane to oversee the line. Also labeled a high priority were new signs, curb painting to indicate where vehicles can wait, and where they cannot block driveways.

For the long term, the planning board recommended the town hire a consultant to observe the summer traffic. The board offered to fund part of the cost.

Town administrator Pam Dolby suggested another option.

“For the $384,000 we pay the Martha’s Vineyard Commission, maybe their traffic consultants could come over here,” she said.

Chappaquiddick Ferry co-owner Peter Wells said he has installed two new cameras to monitor traffic on Simpson’s Lane, which will soon be accessible to the public through the ferry website.

Highway superintendent Stuart Fuller said he will begin painting new lines on the street this week, weather permitting.

Mrs. Dolby said the police department will have enough summer officers to devote staff to the ferry line.

Also Monday, selectmen appointed a new committee to study alternatives to a mobile phone tower on Chappaquiddick. Selectmen named Chappaquiddick resident Woody Filley as chairman, and residents Roger Becker, Jonathan Cobb and Robert Gurnitz as members. Also named to the committee was Trustees of the Reservations superintendent Chris Kennedy. Edgartown information technology manager Adam Darack will serve as a town liaison to the committee.

In May, selectmen awarded a contract to Grain Communications of Sarasota, Fla., granting the company the right to build a mobile phone communications network on Chappaquiddick and sign up carriers to provide service. The contract did not specify a tower or any specific technology, and the company would be responsible for obtaining a special permit, after public hearings, from the planning board.

In other business, selectmen approved new taxi regulations that will apply to ride-sharing companies like Uber. Under the new regulations voted by the selectmen, Uber drivers in Edgartown will have to comply with the same regulations as licensed taxi drivers. Drivers will have to undergo a criminal background check and have their vehicles inspected by Edgartown police. They will be under the same requirements for insurance and licensing.

Selectmen also accepted a letter from police chief David Rossi, in which he resigned his elected post on the Edgartown school committee. Selectmen have placed advertisements seeking candidates. Letters of interest must be submitted by July 2. Selectmen and remaining members of the school committee will choose a new school committee member on July 13 to fill out the remainder of Mr. Rossi’s term.
