Valparaiso Avenue Repairs!

Dear Members,
I am a long time resident who lives on Valparaiso Avenue. I just received the Street Improvement notice that ( for me) is Wed. Aug 21-Fri Aug 23 thatmy street area will be repaired.

I live between Sacred Heart and Menlo schools. The first day of school for SHS is Monday, August 19. Menlo School has orientation on August 21 and first day of school on Aug 22.

All of these dates are readily available to you. Part of planning any project is timing. You have selected the WORST time for your project. During the first week ( and often second week) of school there is an excess traffic on Valparaiso Ave. That first week, parents drop kids off, they tend not to carpool, kids don't walk or ride bikes.

PLEASE PLEASE rethink the date of this project. You had all summer to plan this and I can not understand why you have selected this week. Getting in and out of my driveway during regular life is already a challenge. What a mess you will create for traffic and these schools! Please tell me why you have chosen this week.
