YOU NEED SPEED BUMPS NOW ON MINERAT BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED. CRAP, THERE ARE KIDS RUNNING INTO THE STREET AND THESE DAMN PEOPLE FLYING DOWN THE STREET LIKE CRAZY PEOPLE. DO IT NOW! GET COPS OVER HERE.
Well, as of February, the "pit" on the property is being filled in. A simply massive job, involving at least a THOUSAND double-hopper trucks coming in from who-knows where on Hwy.237 day in and day out. Most impressive. And an excellent job of dust and dirt mitigation by the crew on site; multiple street sweepers constantly on the move on Minaret and surrounding streets. Graders equipped with GPS units. Fascinating to watch. Worth a story.
I agree with Steve to SOME extent. Yes, there are sweepers that come by. And the construction employees I've seen have been incredibly courteous and polite. Wave to me every morning when I go to work. Having said that, my car still gets covered with the dust that emanates from that area. It's fascinating to watch in that I'm completely flummoxed about how they're going to build such a large complex and address the volume of traffic, not just speed. And the beep, beep, beep at 7 a.m. is a very difficult adjustment. As I write this, am I alone in this? Lastly, are these homes for sale or for rent? Had an email exchange with a city council member who said that the council is very pro-ownership and doesn't quite understand or support the idea of additional rental housing. Not everyone can fork out $900k+ for a home. I'm so frustrated with this project. I wish I had known about the August hearing. I would've been glad to voice my concerns.
