Palo Alto Planning and Transportation recommends making Arastradero restriping permanent

Last night, the Palo Alto PTC recommended that City Council make the Charlston-Arastradero corridor restriping permanent including some fine-tuning recommended in the staff report. City Council will review the project in September. Letters to PTC favored the project 26-8. About a dozen people gave public comment in person, slightly more against.

The main arguments in favor of making the restriping permanent were that the project achieved its main goals.
* reducing speeding on Arastradero
* reducing collisions
* increased cycling
* while not decreasing travel time

As Commissioner Fineberg summarized, “mission accomplished”

The main arguments against were from residents of Barron Park who reported more cut-through traffic. City staff will do further measurements before the project goes to Council for final approval.
