Good Morning to all of you -

Below are a few emails in regards to experimental green paint the city is planning to apply in a specific area on Nimitz.  See below.

If you agree with what I have wrote in my email and have a moment, will you please send an email to both Brian Genovese at BGenovese@sandiego.gov and Ed Clancy at EClancy@sandiego.gov to help advocate for better facilities along this critical area on Nimitz.

It is really important that they hear from the residents using these facilities.  

Thank you.  Your support is appreciated.

Nicole

That is such a bummer to hear.

The District 2 Bike/Ped Advisory Committee has been advocating for over a year to improve the three critical blocks as part of safe routes to schools.  We have made traffic requests, had Kevin Faulconer as well as both of you to come out and evaluate this area, and have discussed it with community groups.  I have also requested help from the Sandag Bike/Ped Working Group to address this area for the past two years.

The Peninsula Community Planning Board has recognized this area (Southbound Nimitz from Wabaska to Chatsworth) as an important area to make improvements to and have made requests for improvements as well.

The area you are proposing has already seen improvements, and in our opinion, is not a high priority area.

We really hope you will reconsider the area and do what is best for the students and all commuters in the area.

District 2 will be very disappointed if the city ignores our requests.  It is time to treat these three blocks and create a safer facility for the students in the area.

Please let me know what we can do to make the improvements to this area before someone is hurt.  It is an extremely dangerous area for all riders heading southbound on Nimitz due to the high volume and fast paced traffic.

Please, Please, Please do something that will make a difference for our community.

Thank you.

Nicole

Good Morning Nicole,

The plan is to treat the segment that was recently striped at Lowell Street with the buffered bike lanes.

Good Morning Ed and Brian -

Can one of you verify where on Nimitz you plan to use this experimental green paint?

Thanks.
