Jim Drake thanked staff and Council for the repairs to paving to remove car jumps at, or near, the intersections Carlos Bee Boulevard and Harder Road with Mission Boulevard and would like to know the cost of grade-correction. He is also concerned about safety on Mission Boulevard where an island rises substantially above the asphalt; he suggested reflectors be used to warn motorists.
Business owners Otis Sanders, Elie Goldstein, Cecilia Halim, Jarrod Carozza and Rudy Grasseschi expressed concern over the Route 238 Corridor Improvement Project's detrimental impact on businesses along Foothill Boulevard and would like to see some sort of help from the City to alleviate the problems and offset loss of trade. Halim pointed out that refuse on the corner of A Street and Foothill Boulevard deters customers.
