The Espola Road Safety Improvements Project will improve safety for those who walk, jog, cycle or ride horses along the stretch of Espola Road between Poway High School and Twin Peaks Road. Specifically, it will add a pathway where none currently exists on the west side of Espola Road, from Mountain Road (just north of Twin Peaks Road) to Willow Ranch Road (about a block south of Titan Way). The first phase of the project will be grading the pathway and shoulder area along with installation of retaining walls and new street lights. This will be followed by the “undergrounding” of nearly all overhead utilities in the area. This means that the overhead powerlines and other equipment will be moved underground, aesthetically improving the roadway and removing obstacles from the proposed pathway.
he Poway City Council will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 20 to discuss several items, including approving a time extension on a subdivision project. The council previously approved a tentative tract map for the Tierra Bonita Subdivision project, which is set to expire on March 4. This project is a 12-lot residential subdivision of an approximate 11.6-acre site on the east side of Tierra Bonita Road, approximately 400 feet south of Twin Peaks Road, according to the meeting’s agenda.
A trio of longtime Rancho Bernardo volunteers have been selected for membership in the RB Hall of Fame.
