Petition to increase the safety of the crosswalk on Santa Cruz Ave at Lemon

From: domainremoved <Yee>

Dear members of the City Council and Nikki Nagaya:

We are writing to request that you prioritize the use of funds to improve
the safety conditions of the crosswalk on Santa Cruz Ave at Lemon. We
understand that it is one of the intersections being considered for
installation of either the in-pavement lighted crosswalk system or a Rapid
Rectangular Flashing Beacon (RRFB) system. We understand that each system
costs approximately $15,000 to install.

We are concerned about this highly used crosswalk and the ability for
residents to cross the street without danger from the many cars moving very
quickly (some of them speeding) on Santa Cruz Ave. Many of these drivers do
not comply with the current crosswalk sign, which is partially hidden by
tree branches. There are many residents using this crosswalk, such as
retirees, parents with small children, and unattended children going to
Hillview or Oak Knoll. This is a complex site with vehicles coming from 4
directions that are all frantically trying to make left turns or go
straight. Furthermore, this crosswalk is designated as one of the
suggested bike routes for Hillview School.

The undersigned residents from Menlo Park (addresses available upon
request) request that you prioritize this improvement and allocate the
funds needed to increase the safety of this crosswalk. Menlo Park families
will be very grateful.

Best regards,
