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.
CVS is requesting a city-wide text amendment that would change
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.
working in neighborhoods late nights and early mornings
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
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.
