Community Voices: Avenue of Heroes' Banners Going up Soon

After one year and 15-months, the Avenue of Heroes Banners will be displayed on SR 282 in Coronado (Third and Fourth Streets).

Third and Fourth Streets Study

As an active member of the Third and Fourth Streets Neighborhood Association (TAF) I will be urging the Coronado Transportation Commission (CTC) to approve the 'Recommended Concept Plan' (Page 7-1through 7-20) and forward said recommendations to the City Council for further community discussion.

Fehrs and Peers are an established and highly reputable firm. Their integrity and expertise are unassailable. To ignore their recommendations defies logic.
