El Centro city manager:
In December 2001, I spoke by telephone to the receptionist/secretary of your office explaining in detail my great concern for the traffic hazard on a street in your city of El Centro. That street is Wake Avenue. Wake is a short street, approximately one to two blocks long, but it has much vehicle and walking traffic.
The present operating businesses that line or are affected on this busy street are: 1) Max Foods, 2) Desert Trails RV Park Resort, 3) Broken Spoke Golf Course and driving range, 4) Social Security, 5) An unknown business, 6) Jacques 'N Jill Health Club, 7) Home Depot, 8) Taco Bell and 9) Direct Auto Plaza.
Plus it is apparent, by visual construction currently going on, that two more businesses will soon be in operation on this road. Any one or all bring in many people. Desert Trails alone has 408 spaces, the majority of residents being senior citizens.
