RANCHO SANTA FE — Rancho Santa Fe is working on a number of initiatives for community improvement.
Director of planning at the Rancho Santa Fe Association, Tom Farrar, joined the Association nearly six months ago and told the board and its members that he’s learning as much as he can and as fast as he can.
He informed to the group the current and foreseeable projects the Association was working on.
According to Farrar, the County Board of Supervisors took under advisement and approved the Association’s request to add seven new “Time Limit” parking ordinances in the Village.
In a letter addressed to Farrar, the San Diego County Traffic Advisory Committee indicated that when their work schedule permits, they would begin the tasks of sign placement and painted curbing where needed.
The goal of this two-hour parking expansion is to help promote more shopping and retail parking spots in the Village.
Also discussed were alternative ways to add more parking around the Village.
Angle parking renderings were presented in where this could be implemented.
One design offered an increase of 32 spaces, and another for 62 spaces, when restriped at various locations.
“We have found spaces without interruption of traffic flow,” Farrar said.
Next, Farrar discussed the resurfacing of county roads in Rancho Santa Fe. The two roads in the que, he said, were San Elijo and El Camino Del Norte.
Farrar also noted how recycled tires were used in the overlay for these pavement projects.
The last topic Farrar discussed was the roundabout project.
According to Farrar, the estimated completion date for roundabouts was the summer of 2019.
The approved three locations included the intersections of Via De La Valle and Paseo Delicias, El Camino Del Norte and Del Dios Highway and El Montevideo, Paseo Delicias and La Valle Plateada.
