Corridor Traffic Study before the Board of Supervisors 7/30/13!

Tuesday 2pm, Building A of the County complex in Placerville - ATTEND IF YOU ARE ABLE!    

If you support a 2-lane Green Valley Rd with safety improvements, you need to attend this meeting.  Come and share your personal experience driving/biking the corridor and emphasize the need for the county to address the existing driveways and safety issues now.  

Link to meeting details & attachments:  (staff report is attachment 1 'A')

Excerpt from the staff report (p10):  " Proceeding with the corridor analysis may be premature until the 2035 forecast is finalized. "    The 2035 forecast is part of LUPPU and not intended to be completed until next year sometime. There is a lot of 'rationalization' in this staff report, and the bottom line is that we do not want the study delayed any further.  

The widening of Green Valley Rd to 4 lanes is also discussed in this staff report.  Remember "If you build it they will come"; We do not want or need GV Rd widened at this time.  The 4-lane projection is based on outdated figures. Shawna Purvines acknowledges that rather than changing these outdated numbers, the date at which we reach this projection is assumed to be farther out, and yet this is not being acted upon or acknowledged in writing.  We need the study much more than we need the extra lanes.

If you are unable to attend, please write to the Board and Kim Kerr ASAP to be included in public comment.  But we need bodies, and we need speakers.  Please participate and show the Supervisors how important this is.  

If you have not attended a Supervisor's meeting before, know that parking across the street by the library is sometimes necessary, and because we would like a good turnout, hopefully this is one of those times!
