Monte Vista High parking lot renovations begin

Project to affect driver, pedestrian access to pool, tennis courts, classrooms

Renovation work has begun on the south parking lot at Monte Vista High in Danville, a project that will reroute drivers and pedestrians hoping to access campus athletic facilities this summer.

The school's north parking lot across the street from the campus, as well portions of the staff parking lot and the horseshoe pick-up/drop-off area, will remain open during construction, which is expected to last through mid-August, according to school district representatives.

Officials said signs would be posted to direct pedestrians where to walk to access the stadium, community pool, tennis courts and classrooms.

Drivers and pedestrians are advised to allow extra time for getting to summer classes and programs at Monte Vista and to use caution when traveling through the construction area.

Officials hope the parking lot renovation will provide better traffic flow for students and the surrounding community.

Would have been nice to have seen the "plan" for how traffic will flow...... but no notice or presentation to me in greater Danville area (yet I use the MVHS facilities and Oak Hill park a LOT).
I'm always suspect of Planners plans (as though so often have major flaws).
Too bad they don't really want or allow public pre-evaluation.
(and costs to redo come out of taxpayer's pockets anyway).


Don't miss out on the discussion!
