SQVA Annual Town Meeting

  Dear Neighbors,

 

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.

 

Please save the date, Saturday, January 27, 2018, for the San Quentin Village Association Members Meeting.  The meeting will take place at the Rod & Gun Club from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m.  The first part of the meeting will consist of neighborhood issues, accomplishments of the Board during 2017., finance report and discussion re dues amounts, and election of the members of the Board of Directors for 2018.  A few guests will be joining us for the second half of the meeting, including Marin County Supervisor, Dennis Rodoni, an aide from CA Assemblyman Marc Levine’s office, an expert in rodent control and a representative from Cal Trans who will give us an update on the San Rafael/Richmond Bridge third lane project. 

 

We hope you can join us for this meeting.  Please let me know if there is anything that you would like me to put on the agenda.  Also, please let me know if you would be interested in serving on the Board or as a Committee Member.   There are currently 7 board seats up for election for 2018.  It would be very helpful to have the names of all interested parties by the Annual Meeting, so that we can present all the names at the meeting for consideration by the members.

 

 

I will be sending out a further reminder and draft detailed Agenda within the next few weeks.  Our dues are currently $30 per voting member.  If you are unable to make the meeting and would like to be a voting member, please send a check payable to the San Quentin Village Association, P.O. Box 38, San Quentin Village, 94964. 

 

Our Board and committees have been hard at work this past year.  I’d like to acknowledge the great work of our Board members as follows:

 

1) Beautification Committee (consisting of Donna Garske, Jasmine Demil, Sherri McDannold, Cynthia Glinka, Dave Barni and myself) :  As you hopefully noticed, a number of jasmine plants were planted in front of the Cal Trans building, making the entryway to our Village more appealing.  A watering system was set up to get the plants started during the summer months.  More plans for beautification at in the works and will be discussed at the annual meeting.  Committee members have also worked with Cal Trans to install the green material om their cyclone fence that hides their materials, etc. in their yard.

 

2) Our Board members have served as liaisons with various state and county agencies, such as the prison, and with the County re the finalization of the sidewalk project and the wall and new parking area at the beginning of the Village.  They have also been in contact with Cal Trans representatives to receive updates on the third lane project on the Bridge.

 

3) Our Board and committee members worked with the County to install the new speed hump at the beginning of the Village.

 

4) Our webmaster, Chris Ioakimedes has been updating our website to include the notifications from Cal Trans re work being done on the bridge.

Our Village emergency contact  list will be updated, so if you know of anyone who has moved from the Village or moved into the Village within the last year, please let me know.

 

Please note that our website is SQVA.org.   Notices re possible road/on & off-ramp closures due to the work being done on the Bridge are posted on the website, as well as emergency numbers for police, sheriff, fire, etc.  We will also post the Agenda for the upcoming meeting on the website.

 

Please email me if you have any questions, suggestions for the agenda, etc.

 

Best regards,

 

Michele Barni

President, San Quentin Village Association

Richmond-San Rafael Bridge lane gets OK from bay overseer agency

It’s not often a new traffic and bike lane are created in a busy Bay Area corridor, but that’s what will happen on the increasingly busy Richmond-San Rafael Bridge.

A key bay protection agency gave its approval Thursday for the addition of an eastbound, third traffic lane on the lower deck and a bike lane on the upper deck of the span. The Bay Conservation and Development Commission reviews all projects that are built in or over the bay and its approval was needed to allow the commute relief plan to move forward.

“It keeps the project on track,” said John Goodwin, spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, which has guided the project through various regulators.

Beleaguered evening commuters could see a third lane open on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in October 2017.

Richmond-San Rafael Bridge commute relief due in October 2017

Beleaguered commuters could see a third lane open on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge in October 2017.

A final design to open a third eastbound lane on the Richmond-San Rafael Bridge has been approved by Caltrans, clearing the way for a project to start once a builder is found.

“Work could start as soon as October,” said John Goodwin, spokesman for the Metropolitan Transportation Commission, the agency that has led the project. It would take one year of work to open the lane.

In addition to a third vehicle travel lane on its lower deck, a bike lane will go on top. The two projects have a $74 million price tag.
