A copy of the Agenda and Staff Report for the July 25th meeting can be found here.

While the Commission may boast of the ‘traffic calming’ effects the project has had, they have glossed over the facts, from their own statistics, that traffic on streets within Barron Park, and especially on Maybell Avenue, has increased significantly as drivers seek ways to avoid the congestion on Arastradero Road.
