Aerial of Civita Depicting Traffic and Safety Concerns
Finger trails lead from Civita Park and end at Via Alta and Franklin Ridge; however, there are no crosswalks at any of these trail heads to allow residents on the other sides of the roads to cross safely. The flaws in these roads create dangerous pedestrian situations. Sudberry and the City understands the necessity of crosswalks for safety and installed FIVE crosswalks on Civita Blvd. between Via Alta and Franklin Ridge. Yet, there are NO crosswalks between Civita Blvd. and the top of Via Alta and Franklin Ridge, both half-mile stretches of road.
Original Map Used from 2011 to early 2018:
The above map was used from 2011 to early 2018 for marketing and sales disclosures distributed by Sudberry, New Homes, Shea Homes, Ryland (now CalAtlantic) and TRI Point. It shows a dead-end at the northern point where Via Alta and Franklin Ridge join (C). There is no indication of the “possible” freeway connector between Civita and Interstate 805.
Revised Map Used Beginning in early 2018:
Sudberry Properties has been informed by Civita residents for roughly three years that it should revise the marketing map because they believed it inaccurately described the situation with the connector. Only when residents stood on the sidewalks of Via Alta in April 2018 and handed out flyers warning home buyers of the connector’s dangers did Sudberry change the map to acknowledge the connector.

This illustration is in both the FPEIR and the Specific Plan. The Specific Plan has the most
information about crosswalks.
Detailed illustrations in Quarry Falls Final Specific Plan indicate cross walks on Via Alta and Franklin Ridge. Why were these crosswalks not installed when the roads were built?
