Good Morning, COGS E-Newsletter Reader Somehow I missed including these two important items in last night’s edition.  You are probably affected by one if not both of these.

Case 3-TA-2015  CVS is requesting a city-wide text amendment that would change Commercial Office to include something called “Support Retail Use” so they could construct and operate a CVS on the SW corner of 96th Street and Shea. The existing office use designation in the current General Plan protects adjacent residential areas (Scottsdale Ranch) from the negative impact of a commercial retail use and its subsequent traffic and pedestrian increases.  IF this were approved, there are 10 other locations that could then impact next to a residential area—are any of these near your home? (1) Miller Rd/Pinnacle Peak Rd (2) Scottsdale Rd/Thompson Peak (3) Raintree Road/Thompson Peak  (4) Shea Blvd/96th St  (5) Via de Ventura/Gainey Center Dr. ( 6 ) Via de Ventura/Pima Road (7 ) Mountain View Rd/92nd to 96th St ( 8 ) 136th St/Shea (9 ) Bell Road/Pima Rd  (10 ) Scottsdale Road/Deer Valley Road.

COX Communications working in neighborhoods late nights and early mornings

Beginning this week until mid-August, COX contractors will be doing work inside their existing pedestal boxes that are located in residential front and side yards, in alleys, and in areas along commercial buildings throughout the entire city, one area at a time.  The work is being done between midnight and 8 am, Monday through Friday, to minimize service disruption (sleep?) to Cox customers. 

·         COX is placing door hangers at homes in areas that they will be working to inform the residents about the project in their neighborhood.

·         Technicians will have lights from their trucks and localized lighting around their work area.

·         Each technician will have an ID badge and their vehicle will have a magnetic sign with the contractor company’s name indicating that they are a contractor for COX. 

·         COX will schedule the work in alleys to minimize conflicts with Solid Waste trucks; however, if a COX vehicle is blocking the alley, the technicians will move their vehicle to allow the Solid Waste truck access to the alley.
