City Manager's Weekly Update
Week ending October 5, 2018

Thursday, October 4, 2018 was Fall Bike to Work Day in Santa Cruz County!  Did you bike to work or bike your kids to school?  You may have noticed that the City has been busy improving bicycle safety and mobility in town.  We recently completed bicycle improvements at the Scotts Valley/Mount Hermon Road intersection and on Glen Canyon and South Navarra Road.  We hope in the not-to-distance future to add Glenwood Drive to that list.

Town Center/Town Green Project Update

This week, I met with the Town Center developers who reported that they are actively working on site options/models based on the feedback they received at the September community open house. It is anticipated that another community meeting will be scheduled in November. The developers are also in the process of updating their website with new informational material and will participate in another interview with My ScottsValley in mid-October.
