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

Dear Ms. Choy,

I would like to follow up on this issue.

I saw the yellow crosswalk lines being painted last year, but have not
noticed any trimming of the trees.

Can you comment on your prioritization plan for this crosswalk, as well as
the time schedule?

Thank you,

Best regards,

Yee-Yie Fogarty
