Dear all, within days of my 6/10 email below, the City of Ojai fixed the upside-down ‘Bike Only’ sign on Maricopa Hwy (please see right-side up sign attached above); like “nibbling around the edges”, the City Council failed to address the real issue (lane reduction in a fire-prone region), instead choosing to do little things on the surface that don’t really make much difference. Alta Planning + Design (engineers for Lane Reduction on Maricopa Hwy) please note, does your liability policy cover professional negligence (eliminating vehicle lanes in a region with a history of wildfire)?
The actions by the 3-2 majority on the Ojai City Council remind us of San Francisco’s recent recall of their district attorney. Residents of SF voted Chesa Boudin out of office because “he didn’t seem to care that he was making the citizens of our city miserable in service of an ideology that made sense everywhere but in reality”. Rather than a “vanity project”, Ojai residents (like those in SF) want their elected officials to create and maintain a livable city (which includes resurfacing badly worn city streets and repairing the Ojai Bike Trail).
Please see recent articles and links below about climate change and wildfire evacuation in California’s small rural towns:
“Whether or not individuals or communities in the greatest risk of fire are doing enough to prevent catastrophe, one thing is clear: Almost all of them see the risk they face. The Camp Fire was the big wake-up call for people in fire zones. And there’s a growing awareness that there’s no ‘fire season’ anymore.
Lastly, please visit the link below for an on-line video titled “California Route 33 Scenic Drive” to see the beautiful scenery along our Hwy 33 until you arrive at Ojai’s 5-STOP at 1:33:43 (1 hour, 33 minutes, 43 seconds) where the Demonstration Project begins:
