7 May 2015The City Council met in regular session.
- "12. Consideration of Prohibition of the Route of CV Link Over Any Portion of Highway 111 or Bob Hope Drive, in the City of Rancho Mirage
- Public Comment
- "Mary Jane Filice, a resident in Thunderbird Cover, requested that
the City Council does not allow the CV Link in the City of Rancho
Mirage. She commented that good planning does not
mix high speed, high volume traffic with pedestrian traffic. Ms. Filice encouraged the City Council to not let the pressure of their sister cities impact their decision on this issue.
- "Councilmember Smotrich commented that far beyond the financial aspects of the CV Link are the safety issues. When motor vehicles are put together with runners, walkers and bicycles, she stated this presents a major safety hazard and is a catastrophe waiting to happen. Councilmember Smotrich will be addressing this issue at her CVAG meeting next week.
