This is being forwarded from the Green Valley Alliance (GVA) because they have traffic and land use issues similar to Shingle Springs, including traffic safety along Green Valley Road.

Subject: GV Corridor Traffic Study, Public Workshop!!

Great news from the Green Valley Alliance-  

County staff has scheduled the public workshop to gather input for the Green Valley Road corridor traffic study scope.  If you wish to provide input before the study begins - especially if you signed the petition to help make this happen! - then attend this meeting: 

Thursday, October 24, 2013 
6:30 to 8:30 p.m. 
Pleasant Grove Middle School Multi Purpose Rm, 2540 Green Valley Rd, Rescue; see attached flier forwarded from County staff.

ADDITIONALLY:    If you have not seen the "Twelve Days of Wilson" on the GVA website, you need to! (  The staff report 'recommends this project for approval', so as obvious as a NO vote by our Board of Supervisors would seem, this is not a slam-dunk.  Please look at this project, attend the hearing, and/or write to the supervisors, if you see the problems that we see.

COUNTY STAFF PROBLEM?   Some members of county staff are having 'denial' issues.  They do not seem able to 'deny' problematic projects, and they are in 'denial' over constraints of Measure Y that are intended to protect you and me as county residents.  Link to Village Life article by Julie Samrick: .  As of Monday, 10/14, county staff is still refusing to acknowledge the full import of the Caltrans letter dated 9/25 (presented 9/30) and are continuing to spread misinformation.  We need to stop this. These are the people informing our Board of Supervisors on their votes.

If you do not understand the problem, please ask - do not allow the county or yourself to be 'run over', literally or figuratively.

Ellen Van Dyke on behalf of GVA
