The City of San Diego and Scripps Ranch Planning Group (SRPG) received a request from a StoneBridge Estates resident to install a stop sign on Stonebridge Parkway near the new Sycamore Park and raised medians. The purpose behind the request is traffic calming. The City of San Diego Traffic Engineering evaluated the stop sign request for both Stockwood Cove and Stonecroft Terrace intersections. Neither location mathematically warranted a stop sign at this time*, so the request falls under the alternative process for installation.
The SRPG instituted its protocol regarding traffic calming requests, which entails an ad hoc committee and using the Scripps Ranch Civic Association (SRCA) to host this survey. The committee met with Stonebridge residents and city staff. Short-term and long-term plans were proposed. In the short term: install a stop sign and/or V-Calm speed sign. In the long term: construct a traffic circle, raised medians, and/or an additional entrance/exit to Sycamore Park. Other traffic calming measures were evaluated by city staff (and not recommended by city staff): rumble strips, flashing caution lights, speed humps, signal light, and mid-block stop sign at the park entrance. SRPG requested "Park Entrance" signs to be installed (currently in process).
Your responses will be kept confidential; only the aggregate result percentages will be released. The results of this survey will be presented to the SRPG and City Council office for a recommendation at a noticed public meeting. Only residents of 92131 are eligible to take this survey and only one response per household. If you are not familiar with the SRCA, please visit our website at www.scrippsrach.org.
* The City of San Diego traffic engineers go through a stop sign evaluation process that assigns mathematical points for various physical conditions, reported accidents, volume of traffic, etc.
