Rancho Santa Fe repaving project likely to be finished by July


By Karen Billing

Ivan Holler, covenant administrator, told the RSF Association board May 17 that the repaving of some Covenant roads should hopefully be complete by July.

Roads scheduled for repaving by the county are Mimulus, Las Planideras, Los Morros, Rambla de las Flores and Via de Fortuna.

Lago Lindo will also be repaved at a later date than the other five streets.

Mimulus requires some additional structural repairs before the seal coating, which is expected to begin in June.

Holler also reported that the county’s project to repaint the village green curbs was completed last week, including painting over a curb illegally painted green on Paseo Delicias. However, soon after the curbs were again illegally painted green again. The green is not the same as the official county color and represents three spaces on La Granada and four on Paseo Delicias. Parking violations are not enforceable on those unofficial green curbs and the county will likely have to come back and paint over them again.

In order to consider making those spaces timed spaces, a request could be made of the RSF Association. The matter would then go before the county traffic advisory committee and have to be approved by the county supervisors. Board member Dick Doughty suggested that maybe the illegal painting is proof that the request has been made.
