The City Council on Jan. 28 will consider changes to improve traffic and pedestrian safety in South Palm Springs, including two in our neighborhood:
- A three-way stop at La Verne and Toledo, with marked/highlighted crosswalks
- Marked/highlighted crosswalks at Toledo and Maricopa
(Marked/highlighted crosswalks were recently installed at East Palm Canyon and Deepwell in front of Elmer’s.)
Our district council member, Lisa Middleton, told us, “I know that there are concerns about other problematic traffic, pedestrian and cycling chokepoints in South Palm Springs. These are not the only improvements that will be considered.”
The staff report on these proposed changes will be posted on the city’s website. We suggest you familiarize yourself with the report if you wish to submit a comment or ask to speak at the virtual public council meeting.
