As you may know, speeding cars and kids playing on the street
has become a source of concern for residents in Area 11, especially on Turing Street and Coltrane Court. ICHA is aware of this concern and has had several meetings with affected residents, HRB members and the UCI Police Department. These meetings have resulted in the HRB Transportation Committee and ICHA developing a plan, in consultation with concerned residents, to improve traffic safety and awareness in these areas. If you are receiving this email, you live in the area of University Hills with the highest usage of Turing Street as a point of entry. We are asking for your cooperation in the effort to increase awareness and improve safety in University Hills.
The proposed plan centers on three "Es": Engineering, Enforcement, and Education. Working in concert, these three approaches are intended to improve safety for children, bicyclists, pedestrians, and drivers in Area 11.
Two projects to be completed by the end of 2020 will alleviate some of these concerns. First, the Miramonte Rental Townhomes will be completed, eliminating construction worker and construction delivery vehicles in the neighborhood. Second, the opening of three new parks in the community, Gateway Park, Vista Park and Playground Park, will provide additional safe alternatives for children to play.
Here is a preliminary timeline:
