Why would they make the entrance off of a residential street? The old golf course entrance is off of Main Street. There is no reason the flow of traffic should not come in and out off of Main and Solano. Adjusting the existing light and lanes where El Camino Real comes out and also adding another at the crossroad where the Dairy Queen is to ease congestion and possible accidents during lunch breaks is going to be necessary for safety.

Since Apodaca park has peak visitors at times that will be almost opposite the peak traffic times in and out of the new development, it should be obvious to redesign the park entrance to work with the medical center entrance//exit.

It has been along time waiting for the southbound lanes of traffic after Main Street crosses over the walking path to finish making the ambiguous right hand "emergency" lane into an official right hand turn lane for all the businesses along that stretch of road.

Flow and volume of traffic from the Solano/Main St. intersection cannot tolerate another driveway or entrance any closer to the intersection than already exist. It is imperative that the lanes allow for merging and lane changes from that southern intersection in the lanes going North on Main.
