IMPERIAL — Drivers here will need to be especially vigilant starting the first week of October when driving on North Imperial Avenue.

Effective Oct. 1, new stop signs will be installed at numerous intersections along North Imperial Avenue.

The intersection of North Imperial Avenue and 12th Street will have stop signs in all four directions.

The intersection of North Imperial Avenue and 14th Street will have stop signs only for east/west traffic.

The intersection of North Imperial Avenue and 15th Street will have stop signs for traffic flowing north and south. Westbound traffic will have yield signs with left and right turn arrows only.

Drivers are asked to drive defensively in these areas to keep the changes incident-free.

In other city news, at an Imperial Planning Commission workshop Wednesday evening, the city's consulting firm, Urban Futures Inc. of Orange, gave a presentation detailing the advantages of a redevelopment district.


At a general meeting of the Planning Commission following the workshop, the requirement that members who live within 300 feet of a proposed redevelopment area recuse themselves from any discussion concerning the Redevelopment Agency was addressed.

"Until we get that issue resolved, it has been necessary to continue the meeting until Sept. 26," City Manager Vincent Long said.

He went on to say that several members of the commission would be affected by that ruling.

Long added the issue would be addressed as the first order of business at the Sept. 26 meeting and following that, the original agenda from this Wednesday night would be followed.
