The City of Atascadero......... Will change Our El Camino to ONE (1) Lane each direction . If we do not Act.
Jeopardizing the fast response of our - First Responders- from our - ONLY- Police Station- And one of our Fire Stations located in El Camino Corridor.
And limit that response to our nearby HIGH SCHOOL ....... A Real Safety Concern.... in Today's Environment.
They call it Traffic Calming , And your Tax Dollars will be spent to make our city CONGESTED and UNSAFE.
They need to keep All 4 Lanes Open ( 2 Lanes each direction), So Emergency Vehicles have a route and may Respond around Existing Traffic that is backed up in a single and only lane with nowhere to pull over.
This will Dramatically Increasing Traffic Congestion and Risk the SAFETY for all 30,000 residents........ Only to benefit a few businesses.
In all their wisdom, City Officials have already spent $100,000.00 Tax Dollars on a consulting firm. and will spend another $ 500K + for construction......... That's nothing compared to the Liability of future lawsuits.
They could, - Keep all 4 lanes open for Emergency Vehicle Response and Congestion relief and have just lowered the speed limit to" Calm Traffic"............ all for little or No Cost
WE NEED to Save our town from such Brilliant "Progress"
It is IMPORTANT that - WE - SHOW- UP (speak if you like ) at the next Two (2) City Council meetings.
. We need to tell them NOT to PROCEED with the Corridor Plan
They meet on the 2nd ∧ 4th Tuesday @ 6PM City Hall, 4TH FLOOR
