If you build high density housing on that big empty lot on the south side of Bollinger near the library and the Valero station, it could put a lot more pedestrians walking near Bollinger, creating a safety hazard and increase traffic.

Bollinger Canyon Road is a major traffic artery for Windemere, Gale Ranch, and other east San Ramon neighborhoods. Don’t put pedestrians on Bollinger. Cars and pedestrians don’t mix.

To avoid a safety and traffic disaster, if you really want this housing built, then the Town Council should make sure that the walkway from the housing complex to the new bridge they’re building over Bollinger is seamless and the easiest way possible to cross Bollinger. Make the developer plant bushes and create other obstacles to encourage people to use the bridge rather than the crosswalk.

Also, the Town Council should require the developer to make a small trail from the housing complex to the Market Place Shopping Center so people don’t have to walk onto the Bollinger sidewalk to go shopping. Remember when a guy fell off the sidewalk into traffic on Crow Canyon and died? You need to avoid that kind of thing. There’s a little strip of land between the Residence Inn and Sports Basement that could be accessed from the Iron Horse Trail. Make the developer acquire an easement from those two businesses and make that small alleyway into a trail. It would save lives.
