Re: Proposed Buena Vista Park Subdivision, 465 single-family residential homes
We are very disappointed in the El Centro Planning Commission. We believe that a subdivision of this size should have more planning going into it. We find it incredible that this project could be approved before the Imperial Avenue extension is completed south of Interstate 8 to McCabe Road. The increase in the amount of traffic on Clark Road will make a hazardous situation unless the entire roadway is widened. (The section by the water plant would remain as it is right now, as well as the portion south of the project.)
The Planning Commission didn't factor in the cost of cleanup of the weapons range. There is hazardous material there in the form of lead, bullets, etc. There needs to be a plan for paying for the relocation and cleanup of the weapons range, including who will do it and when it will be done.
