Meeting Notes by Jill Cooper
Those present included Jill Cooper, Paul Dickstein, Dan Goldberg, and Karl Rudnick.
Lomas Santa Fe Corridor Improvement Project
City Engineer Dan Golberg reported that the final shovel-ready plans for the project were submitted to SANDAG. The next step is to secure funding in order to begin building, and the City Staff will apply for grants. One outcome might be to split the overall project into separate construction projects.
City Pavement and Striping Project
This project involves pavement repair and new paint striping throughout the city, based on findings from the City’s pavement condition assessment program completed every 5 years. The project is out for bid in the amount of $700,000 – 800,000.
Bicycle Friendly Community Signs
The signs from the League of American Cyclists are here, and will be installed soon by the City Engineering Staff at designated locations on roads into and through the city. Thanks, Dan! The City paid $500 for 10 signs.
