Greg Notley expressed concerns regarding the lack of response from Caltrans to some of his questions regarding the trail system.

He explained why he thought using the culvert as part of the trail is viable. Tenn Mohan, San Luis Obispo, expressed concern regarding Alternative #3 and said he thought that Calle Joaquin would be better suited for access. He suggested that instead ' no more time should be spent on the Dalidio area, but that consideration should be given City Council Meeting Page 11 Tuesday, October 21, 2008 to using Buckley. Road as the alternative to Route 227. He also suggested that a study ' should be made for two exits onto Palos Verdes Street. He supported the undercrossing for the Bob Jones trail. Eugene Jud, San Luis Obispo, raised questions about the environmental document and questioned whether greenhouse gas, oil, or the current economic situation was taken into consideration in the study.

Mark Tumer, San Luis Obispo, discussed his concerns regarding the existing signals and ' how difficult it makes for cyclists traveling to Cuesta College, particularly because they must pull out of the bike lane and into the traffic before they get to the first signal. He suggested that an underpass for the bicycle trail should be pursued. Darrel Goo, Los Verdes Park II, expressed concern regarding safety at an underpass because of the existence of the homeless community.

City Council Meeting Tuesday, October 21, 2008 Page 12 —end of public comments — Following clarification by staff, CAO Hampian suggested that CAO recommendation #2 1 be revised to read: "Endorse Alternative #3 subject to completion of an environmental review by Caltrans, including consideration of comments made this evening during the public comment period."

Vice Mayor Brown expressed concern regarding the use of the culvert as a bicycle path. He explained that he would not support pursuing a signal at this time as recommended by the Los Verdes Parks' residents as the warrants don't support doing so. Council Member Settle said he wants the overpass to proceed and asked Caltrans to expedite this matter. He supported prioritizing a signalized intersection and a crosswalk between Los Verdes Parks I and II. He also supported having a bypass link to Buckley Road, though it is unclear when that could happen. He favored the recommended connection to the Bob Jones Trail and said he was open to pursuing the possibility of using the culvert. He noted that noise concerns can be dealt with through mitigation measures. He supported the modified recommendation suggested by CAO Hampian. Council Member Carter supported proceeding with the project so as not to lose the funding for it. He did not have concerns regarding use of the culvert. He said he would not support signalization at this time since the traffic warrants don't support it at this time. He concurred with the revised recommendation. Council Member Mulholland expressed appreciation that rubberized asphalt or alternative paving technology will be used in this project. She did not support placing a bicycle path in the culvert as they were not built for the purpose and would not be able to be used during certain times of the year. She acknowledged the need to remain open to keep some of the suggestions made, to pursue the overpass at this time, and to consider a Buckley Road bypass in the future. She supported addressing the greenhouse gas emissions in the EIR.
