    Dear Director Manolo González-Estay,
    Blach Intermediate School and the City of Los Altos are discussing creating a Class 1 Pathway on a back street of Los Altos for the Middle School students to ride bikes on.
    Our neighborhood strongly objects to this proposal for several reasons.

    1. There are 11 driveways crossing the 1100 foot path causing a dangerous situation for bikers and drivers.
    2. The pathway is on the wrong side of the street for the morning commute.
    3. The middle school students will be traveling too fast on the downhill slope toward school.
    4. This does not align with the description of a Class 1 Pathway in your SR2S guide nor the CalTrans guide.
    5. Middle school students need to learn and use the rules of the road, as they are presently doing.

    What the neighborhood wants is:

    1. The sidewalk completed the length of the street for the walking students.
    2. “Share the Road” street signs on Carmel Terrace and Altamead
    3. Bike chevrons painted on the street, both directions to designate bike riders using the streets.
    4. Drivers dropping off students to be encouraged to use the front of the school to drop off students on school property, not city streets.
    5. The present “No Stopping” signs in back of the school to remain in place so commuting drivers will use the front of the school.

    I would greatly appreciate knowing if an application for financial aid for this controversial project has been sent to the Bay Area Safe Routes to School Network.
