Mission center road update: the contractor has stated work will begin in August 18th time frame. They need to have improvements including a median at the bottom of mission center road.
Jack volunteered to send people to the link for the white book, which is a list of what the contractors have planned and the corresponding timelines. The white book outlines the general procedures and regulations for contractors bidding process, especially section 7 which includes noticing requirements to residents.
Requested a way to get that information available to the public in a web based format.
Sandrock road has been undergrounded but has not been re-paved.
Murray ridge ADA curb cuts have been started which means that a resurfacing should be imminent. Raejean has not been resurfaced.
What happens to the money that the city gets for 163 interchange improvement. Engineering Capitol projects webpage shows the start date in 2014.
No chairs report or other reports
No meeting August.
Update on Civita by Marco Sessa and mark Radlow gave an update on the project with the highlights below:
First phase of infrastructure improvements were done in 2010. Going through the process of making improvements required for the appropriate phase. This includes the interconnects for the traffic signals but the timing is controlled by the city traffic engineers. 5 million dollars paid to the city for CIP fund for the 163 interchange. This requires both a CEQA and a Nepal review. Final EIR certified in 2010. Friars road will be widened as part of the improvement from Texas street to mission center road. Will install the the first private electric vehivle chargers in a public right of way.
Working with SDGE to become the first smart grid community via the use of fuel cells and battery storage.
The trigger for the phasing is the number of ADTs and the number of units. The Phyllis place park will be phased in at approximately 1200 units.
C. Moore asked how would the road connection benefit s potential future Mission Valley development in terms of future mitigation. The road reduces trips from friars and 163, mission center and I-8 and friars and I-15 and Friars Rd have less traffic.
The City of San Diego has identified Mission Valley as a transportation corridor with the trolley access so they want more development in Mission Valley to increase traffic on the trolley.
What bicycle infrastructure will be included? All major internal roads will include bike lanes.
Currently no commercial space has been built, but on plans to start commercial construction in the next 18 months.
The education element has been discussed with other charter schools. Some of the decision are based on state law for enrollment in successful charter schools.
Need to look at how the schools will impact the traffic.
No meeting August.
Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned by B. Peterson at 8:40 P.M.
