Page 4, Cloverdale Reveille, October 1, 1997 Family asks Hot Springs Road be left open Editor&apos;s note: The following letter was sent to Qty Manager Bob Perrault regarding the Hot Springs Road closure issue. Thank you for having Mr. Wanger return a call to me regarding the Del Webb project adjacent to our property. His discussion was frank. He admitted the problem of less than optimal ingress and egress onto our driveway was mentioned over a year ago. He notes however that only recently did he firsthand appreciate the magnitude of the situation. The intersection (transition) between the Old Hot Springs Road and the project is, at best, "poorly designed" (Mr. Wanger's words) and will serve to be a perpetual headache, especially when future development by the Furber's is accomplished. This is the City's fault when long ago the various right-of-ways and plans were spec- ified but did not properly address the location of our driveway. You can discuss the horrid details with John, but in short our driveway and the two large century cypress trees will jut out into the "transition" and serve as a source of liability for the City and us. Our family should be indemnified by the City of Cloverdale of future liability from any collisions or problems ensuing from this misaligned transition. The City has been put on notice! Regarding trying to find a solution, Mr. Wanger had several suggestions: 1. Redesign the intersection properly. Ths would require ad- justment of right-of-ways, redesigning some of the lots of the project and probably would result in delays while this is being accomplished. 2. Try to find a way to provide enough room for lengthy vehicles (truck and trailer combos) currently entering our property to be able to continue to do so. This might help the ingress/egress problem but would do nothing for the poorly deigned transi .tion, almost certain to be a problem now and in the future. 3. Leave Hot Springs Road open as it currently is and redesign an intersection between the exiting and new roads. This is our preference. 4. The City must take our property and lifestyle into consider- ation. This is a rural property which requires road maintenance including combo truck and trailers 60 feet or more in length to haul road materials and other building materials. To state that we should find smaller and shorter rigs to fulfill our needs is unfair. The expense would be greater and it would be less convenient to the difference suppliers that could serve us with materials. 5. Basically, we were here first! The project should work around our needs not the other way around. Our property and the rural lifestyle are a century old and should be preserved. Please understand how important this is! We are very grateful for the City supplying our property with water and hopefully natural gas. We want to be good neighbors!
