Board of Supervisors Create a Blue Ribbon Committee
to Review Proposals for Santa Rosa Road Calming

On Tuesday, February 12, 2002, following a presentation by the Ventura County Traffic Department on possible traffic calming techniques that might be used on Santa Rosa Road, the County Supervisors voted to accept the recommendations made in the Report. Those recommendations were very non-specific and basically consisted of passing on the decision of what should be done to representatives of the local Homeowner Associations, the cities of Camarillo, Moorpark, and Thousand Oaks, the Pleasant Valley School District, the AAA, and the Ventura County Traffic Commission. Supervisor Schillo made a motion to accept the proposal for further study and the creation of the Committee after questioning several of the statements made regarding the safety of the road by the Traffic Department.

Valley residents Mark Burley and Ruth Means spoke reinforcing the concept that improving safety is a high priority and making the point that the Traffic Department once again seems to be forgetting that this is a residential road with hundreds of drivers, pedestrians, and equestrians accessing from unsignaled streets and driveways.

The Supervisors agreed that a committee being formed by the Santa Rosa Valley Community Association (SRVCA) would form the basis for the Blue Ribbon Committee. The Association will meet on February 21st to brief the community on the report and organize their participation. See the Events Page for details on where the meeting will be held.
