Some Point Loma residents who’ve been pushing for changes to the intersection of Canon and Catalina expect a showdown with city planners at tonight’s Peninsula Community Planning Board meeting.
This all follows a fatal accident at that intersection and its crosswalk where a 7-month-old girl was killed back in March.
Residents of the area have known about the dangers latent at that junction and have lobbied city planners with a proposal to redesign the intersection into a residents-only street. Planners have told them that this will take years and only wish to make minor adjustments. The residents believe this is what planners will say tonight at the meeting, and have urged their neighbors and supporters to attend the Point Loma planners’ meeting.
