Would a roundabout on Alameda de las Pulgas at Atherton Avenue in Atherton improve traffic flow in that area?
The Atherton City Council may decide at its meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 20, whether to spend from $25,000 to $35,000 to study that question.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. in the council chambers at 94 Ashfield Road.
The council will also:
● Consider commissioning a study of ways to make El Camino Real safer for all users, including pedestrians and bicyclists.
● Decide whether to get bids on a project to rebuild the Atherton Channel along Marsh Road before the town receives the approvals it needs from outside agencies to go ahead with the project. Getting bids now would let the town begin construction as soon as rains stop, once it has the approvals.
● Hear a report about what areas or rooms in the civic center could be named by donors. A report from Atherton Now says that on Jan. 13 it had $5.1 million in pledges and donations from 41 donors for building the new civic center. Four of the donations are for $1 million, the report says.
The council will also hear a report on progress on design of the civic center.
