A public hearing will be held by the Traffic Management Advisory Committee in Needham on Wednesday night to discuss speeding cars on Brookline Street and Falcon Street, which is near Mitchell Elementary School.

The hearing was prompted by concerns about speeding and signage from a resident of Brookline Street, said Needham Police Lieutenant John Kraemer, a member of the committee. Police have received some complaints about traffic in that area on and off, he said.

The speed limit in that area, he said, is 30 miles per hour, but the school zone restricts it down to 20 miles per hour in some areas.

The hearing will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Charles River Room at 500 Dedham Avenue.
