On Feb. 26 County Supervisor Candace Anderson will host a meeting from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. the Swain House in Hap Magee Park. The purpose of the meeting will be to provide an overview of how AOBs work and time line when residents will be able to give feedback.
Alamo has about $2 million dollars available for traffic mitigation fees collected from developers and the county is required use it or lose it. Not too long ago the AOB presented a plan to widen Danville Boulevard to four lanes. This plan was met with great resistance from the Alamo Community. Now a new plan must be created to spend the money or it must be returned to the developers from whom it was taken. It’s highly doubtful that a 4 lane will be proposed this time, but anything is possible in the 21st century.
Every time the topic of improving Alamo’s traffic situation comes up and it has come up several times, a host of creative ideas are advanced. Some have been quite clever, such as a round about on Danville Blvd. This will be the first time that The Alamo Municipal Action Committee has been involved. To date the burden has been shouldered by the Alamo Improvement Association who has long championed the maintenance of Alamo’s rural character and feel.
As an Alamo resident, I am not sure what I would do with the money, but I do know of at least 3 bicyclists who have been hit by cars in Alamo. Maybe a look into improving the bicycle/motorist interaction would be something to consider.
