I realize this update is a bit off schedule, but here are a few updates I wanted to get you today rather than waiting till next week.  Enjoy your weekend!

Traffic Safety Update
We been talking a lot about traffic safety lately, as well as making safety improvements on our streets.  We want you to share your thoughts with us, and many of the changes either made or under consideration were requested by residents.  Check out our new traffic safety page on our website for more information and use the form below to make suggestions.   

Summerwood & Tapestry
This week the City completed improvements at the intersection at Summerwood & Tapestry in Vintage Ranch. There is a new pedestrian crosswalk on the north side of Summerwood and red curb has been added on Summerwood, at the corners, to improve visibility. Please be aware of a change in road conditions and proceed carefully.

Work at American Canyon Road and Highway 29

Construction crews are replacing the existing sanitary sewer main at the corner of American Canyon Road and Highway 29. Current activities include clearing the work area in preparation for the trenching and potholing to locate the existing utilities, including the existing sanitary sewer main that is scheduled to be replaced (approximately 590 linear feet). Work is expected to last for five weeks. After the work is complete we will improve the landscaping, too!
