Danville council to debate new Lawrence Road stop sign

Rodent nuisance abatement, report from police chief among other agenda items

The Danville Town Council on Tuesday (March 18) is set to consider authorizing a new three-way stop sign at Lawrence Road and Jasmine Way to improve traffic safety in the area.

The discussion is listed among several open-session items for the council's regular meeting, set to convene at 7:30 p.m. inside the Town Meeting Hall, 201 Front St.

In other business, council members will debate a resolution confirming the cost of a recent nuisance abatement as a special assessment on the property, a home on Lowell Drive. Town officials say the price tag exceeded $73,000 for addressing a significant rodent and trash problem at the home.

The council will also receive reports from the police chief, the Danville Arts Commission chair and Danville's representative on the Contra Costa Transportation Authority Citizens Advisory Committee.

There's already an existing stop sign on Lawrence at the intersection a few hundred feet from where they're proposing this new stop sign.

Lawrence doesn't need a new stop sign at Jasmine Way. It needs speed bumps. People drive too fast on Lawrence and they've lost control at the curve and plowed into the fence near Jasmine several times.

Slow down people!! There are lots of kids who walk to school on Lawrence. Lots of joggers, dog walkers, and bikers too.

Funny how there is actually "debate" about some stop signs (and yes, they are important), yet 69-home developments for SummerHill Homes are approved with no real discussion. Tragic.

Yes Danville Resident I am darn serious...Your town council needs a wake up call or maybe you and others like you need a wake up call..

Poster "Disgusted" say it correctly.

They won't install a speed bump there, that proposal has already been rejected by Danville. People that live off Lawrence west of Jasmine don't want an additional stop sign, but they're not the ones dealing with their speed around that blind corner approaching Plumeria. There have been many incidents on that corner including kids driving way too fast, moms racing in their SUVs to get their kids to school and the infamous DUI rollover between Plumeria and Jasmine. 8 out of 10 times that I make a right turn from Plumeria, I have to suddenly stop very quickly to avoid being hit by the fast traveling surprise coming around that corner or I have someone approach me from the rear at a high speed yacking on their cell phone and drive very close to me as to make me feel I have done something wrong. A three way stop would solve this problem, and may save a life or at lease help prevent an accident.They wont install speed bumps there, that proposal has already been rejected by Danville. People that live west of Jasmine dont want it, but theyre not the ones dealing with their speed around that blind corner approaching Plumeria. There has been many accidents on that corner, including kids driving fast, moms racing to get their kids to school and the occasional DUI racing around that corner.

Absolutely right "disgusted" !!! Want to bet that they have to hire a consultant to do a 25k traffic study on this before they can make a decision.......?
