City responds to traffic enforcement complaint 

In response to “Open letter to city officials

Dear Ms. Combs,

I appreciate your concerns and suggestions regarding the mandatory right-turn at 4th and Spring Street. I agree with you that having the correct signage and striping is important as it minimizes driver confusion, reduces unnecessary congestion, and enhances safety. Therefore, I will be performing a review of the right turn only signage and striping at 4th and Spring Streets to insure it complies with City and State Standards. In addition, I will be conferring with our Police Department to look at accident history at this intersection. Lastly, I will work with the City’s Public Works Department to implement any needed changes once my analysis is complete.

I also appreciate your suggestion regarding wayfinding signage. Your suggestions are timely as the City recently formed a committee to address wayfinding around the downtown. Therefore, I have passed on your 4th and Spring Street recommendations to our Wayfinding Committee for consideration. The results of the Committee’s work will be presented to Council within the next few months for approval. If funding and timing align, new downtown wayfinding signage will likely be installed by this time next year.

Thanks again for your suggestions and input. I hope that you will return to Paso Robles in the future.


David Athey

City Engineer
