large neighborhood issue.

At the request of Mayor Bob Kellar, the Santa Clarita City
Council will hold a special City Council meeting on Tuesday, September
30, 2008 at 3:30 p.m.
to address the removal of the temporary Benz
Road/Alaminos Drive traffic diverter. 

           

The traffic diverter was put into place at the authorization
of the City Council, at Benz Road
and Alaminos Street on Wednesday, September 24, 2008, in response to
requests from residents of Benz Road
who are experiencing increased traffic on their street.

           

Following the placement of the diverter, residents living on
surrounding streets contacted the City, expressing concerns with regard to the
diverter.  By Friday, September 26, the
City had received well over 100 emails and phone calls regarding issues related
to the installation of the temporary Benz Road
diverter.

           

Mayor Kellar requested a special City Council meeting be scheduled
as soon as possible to again address this issue.  The City Council will meet in Council Chambers
at City Hall, 23920 Valencia Boulevard,
first floor.
