Diana Case spoke about the Deer Ridge neighborhood noting that areas on the way to Krey Elementary were unsafe and children passed it every day. She asked why Spyglass was paved halfway and asked that someone go down Foothill and see the unsafe wooden structures.

Council Member Beckstrand asked to see issues as they stood now and asked that there be an interim report of what was seen so far.

Community Development Director, Howard Sword, explained that staff would return in April with a comprehensive report regarding completion of the final improvements since there were unresolved financial issues until the end of the month.
