OB Town Council Supports “Slow Down Sunset Cliffs”

by Anthony Gentile / Peninsula Beacon / September 2, 2009

The nagging issue of traffic calming on Sunset Cliffs, spearheaded by the Slow Down Sunset Cliffs effort started a year ago, became a key topic of the Aug. 26 meeting of the Ocean Beach Town Council (OBTC).

A representative from the city’s Traffic Engineering Division was on hand and decided that a new traffic study will be done in the cliffs area. The town council supports Slow Down Sunset Cliffs’ efforts in the matter, according to OBTC board of directors president Jim Musgrove.

“The city traffic and engineering people are going to come out and do another more in-depth study into the actual traffic flow, and we’ll see how that turns out,” Musgrove said. “Our point is that the data they were using was old and, most likely, flawed.”

Musgrove said the city will schedule the traffic analysis as soon as the citizens group presents locations and dates for survey to the town council.

World Oil’s Sunset Cliffs Blvd. proposal should be included in any area traffic study. CONTACT:Matt Awbrey( MAWBREY@SANDIEGO.GOV 619.236.6992) at Councilmember Faulconer’s office and letter the editor of Beacon ( )& let them know. My reasons for doing so are that: 1. the OB Planning Board (as a matter of record)did not consider the traffic impact this W.O. proposal would have and 2. Traffic impact will adverserly effect the movement of emergency vehicles within the SS Cliffs corridor a future widening of the Boulevard not withstanding.
