VLPNO reached out last week to the City regarding the status of the Pedestrian Crosswalk and Caution Lights for the Intersection of N Palm Canyon Drive and Stevens Road. As we are sure you are aware, this intersection has become busier than ever with the opening of Draughtsman and its great popularity.
Gianfranco Laurie, Senior Civil Engineer, Engineering Services Department, City of Palm Springs, returned the inquiry and reported the following:
"The City will soon review the 95% design plans, estimate and specifications and return any comments to the design consultant for final submittal. We are hopeful to get this project on the City Council agenda as early as March 2017 for approval and advertisement. From then on, award the project in late April 2017 and begin construction in late May/early June 2017."
Several VLPNO homeowners have reported that their mail boxes have been broken into over the past couple of weeks, most recently on Stevens Road and Camino Norte.
Please keep a watchful eye out in the neighborhood and call the Palm Springs Police Department 911 if you see any suspicious activity.
