Why did crosswalk need ‘improvements’?

The crosswalk “improvement” project at Covington Road and Riverside Drive is yet another counterproductive city project, highlighting a disturbing trend.

At an intersection where there have been no accidents, unattractive “pork chops” were installed that are a hazard to navigation. No local residents can be found that raised safety issues triggering this project.

LAH council draws dissent on pathways, GreenWaste

After attending the Los Altos Hills City Council meeting June 20, I had two observations.

First, I was shocked that the pathway completion on Summerhill Avenue was not completed in the 13 years we lived off of Summerhill, nor in the five years since. The starts and stops in the paths along Summerhill force residents to just walk in what is a very busy street with several blind curves. Had a safe pathway existed, our children could have walked to school. Yet, instead of placing priority on a pathway that is unanimously desired and so sorely needed for the safety of residents, the town is arguing over a path on Robleda Road that is not only redundant, but requires a $50,000 feasibility study to determine whether it can even be constructed. What is wrong with this picture?

Student pinpoints dangerous intersection

My name is Alex and I am 14 years old. I am writing to you to tell you my feelings about the Fallen Leaf Lane/Homestead Road intersection.

I live on Fallen Leaf Lane and I use this intersection every day. It is not safe whatsoever. There aren’t lights. There are only things that flash on the ground and on a sign when a person tries to use the crosswalk.
