Jacob to meet with residents on road project

After receiving nearly 30 letters, emails, and phone calls regarding the San Vicente Road improvements, with slightly more in favor, County Supervisor Dianne Jacob has agreed to meet with San Diego Country Estates representatives on Jan. 22, said a spokesman from her office.

The San Diego Country Estates Association (SDCEA) board has circulated a petition opposing the county’s project to widen and straighten curves on San Vicente Road between Warnock Drive and Wildcat Canyon Road to improve safety. Plans include adding a bike lane and pathway.

According to Perry Jones, treasurer of the SDCEA board, 1,135 people had signed the petition as of Friday, Jan. 11. Construction for the road project, proposed in 1993, is scheduled to begin this fall. The County Board of Supervisors is expected to discuss and award a construction contract around June.

“Given the safety hazards on the road, county staff has been working at the community’s request on a plan for a number of years to bring much-needed improvements,” Jacob said in an email. “Although I don’t want to see this project shelved, it is important that we get it right. My expectation is that county staff will work with the folks in the San Diego Country Estates to address concerns before the project comes to the Board of Supervisors.”

    The actions of the SDCEA Board of Directors continues to amaze me. Despite the what the misleading petition states, San Vicente Road has been recognized as unsafe by the State of California and the County of San Diego. To present a petition signed by just 10% of the SDCE homeowner's signatures and declare a quorum is misleading at best.

    Additionally, if God forbid the Board of Directors are successful in stopping or delaying this road improvement project, they could very well incur a tremendous liability on the entire Estates when (not if) the next accident occurs on San Vicente Road.

    I hope all the Board of Directors have individual umbrella insurance policies, because they may be held liable.
