CV Link Related Messages from Dana Hobart
There are some matters before the City Council that provoke different opinions and different votes. One issue about which the City Council was unanimous (a 5-0 vote) was the issue of protecting residents from the negative effects of having the CV Link, a 20' to 30' pathway traversing on and adjacent to Highway 111 and Bob Hope drive in locations where it would negatively impact businesses, our Public Library, our Fire Station and multiple residential communities.By voting YES on MEASURE 1 we will cement the protections the city council has approved.
What is CV Link ?
"CV Link is a 50-mile, alternative transportation corridor for bicycles, pedestrians, and low-speed (up to 25 mph) electric vehicles along the Whitewater River and Tahquitz Creek that will initially stretch from Palm Springs to Coachella."
"The proposed initial implementation includes 47 channel or roadway crossings and at grade crossings."
"Phase 1 is anticipated to begin construction in 2017 and involves the majority of construction for the core route between Palm Springs and Coachella. It will involve the expenditure of the entire currently available budget [target $100 Million] and any additional funding that may be confirmed in the next two years of planning and design development."
