Speed Signs Installed Near Palmilla Senior Living Center

City Councilor Cynthia Borrego worked with Senior Center to improve safety

City Councilor Cynthia Borrego joined the Department of Municipal Development and residents at Palmilla Senior Living Center to unveil new speed signage that aims to improve safety around the senior living facility.

Motorists pick up speed through this steeper section of Golf Course Rd. between McMahon Blvd. and Irving Blvd. exceeding the safe speed limit.  Residents were anxious and involved in health threatening accidents attempting to enter and exit their living complex onto Golf Course Rd. 

The residents at Palmilla approached City Councilor Cynthia Borrego for assistance in reducing speeding traffic on Golf Course near the entrance to the Center. In an effort to reduce speeds and improve safety, Councilor Borrego worked with the City’s Department of Municipal Development to install new signage. The additional signage should remind and alert drivers to the road’s 35 mile/hour speed limit and will reinforce safe driving speeds. 

“I was happy to meet with the Palmilla seniors and help them to resolve a safety issue that affects not only their community but the surroundings neighborhoods,” said City Councilor Cynthia Borrego.

A total of three signs were installed; two ‘Speed Limit 35’ signs and one ‘Reduced Speeds Ahead’ sign. The signs cost a total of $760.00, monies gathered from Councilor Borrego’s Set-Aside fund for street projects.
