Saratoga, CA Vice Mayor, Jill Hunter and Brian Berg are two spark-plugs behind the Saratoga Village Development Council, which met Tuesday evening at the Rose International Market on Big Basin Way in Saratoga, CA 95070.
In addition to discussing planned events in March and April, the group saw plans for a $1.2 million Saratoga Village Pedestrian Enhancement project, scheduled to start construction in June and be complete by November 2010. Old world stamped concrete will be added to pedestrian crossings at intersections of Big Basin Way (Highway 9) with 3rd and 4th streets; medians and even median trees will be added in a few places near 4th street. Eight parking spaces will be sacrificed as side walk planters are “bulged out”. There will be a new entry sign, hanging flower baskets and a kiosk at Blaney Plaza. The project will improve pedestrian safety as well as providing attractive decorative embellishments.
