CalTrans –  A discussion of the work being done by CalTrans on the east side of Crown Valley under the 14 freeway was convened.  The work is being done by a CalTrans contractor and according to the stamped, signed, and approved plans that the contractor is working from, CalTrans approved the project on July 24, 2017.  CalTrans made no effort to contact anyone in the community before the project was approved and before work was initiated.  Lynn Davis and Ed Porter from AADUSD announced at a recent AADUSD meeting that the work is being done because in early 2018, AADUSD asked the County and CalTrans to improve safety in the vicinity of the Middle School; however, the project was approved long before the AADUSD ever contacted CalTrans.

  11. Unfinished/New Business – It was asked what was going on with our request for a meeting with County to discuss filming problems; Chuck said he would follow up.  It was also recommended that the ATC request to have a quarterly meeting with DPW about traffic.  It was asked what the status is of CUPs required for Jack in the Box, McDonalds, and Shell since the Rural Commercial zoning ordinance was passed – They need CUPs by 2020.  This will be put on the next agenda.  The revised Draft SEA Ordinance makes “road repair” activities subject to the SEA but “road maintenance” is exempt from the SEA; it was also pointed out that it was not known what “intensification of use” means.  Jacki will followup with DRP on this.
  12. Items for Next Agenda – Drive Through CUP.
