Fallbrook Community Planning Group Circulation Committee approves 'bulb-out' proposal for Main Avenue


Last updated 11/1/2019 at 2:35am

The Fallbrook Community Planning Group Circulation Committee voted Monday, Oct. 21, to send a proposal to build traffic-calming “bulb-outs” on Main Avenue to the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

The proposal had previously been presented to the planning group as an informational item. It was also discussed at the second Fallbrook Revitalization Committee meeting, Sept. 17.

The bulb-outs – basically curb extensions – are expected to have the effect of slowing traffic down on Main Avenue.

“Basically what it is is it gives the perception of narrowing the streets down though means of planting trees or (adding) concrete – we want to make it as aesthetically pleasing as possible,” Eileen Delaney, chair of the revitalization subcommittee and a member of the circulation committee, said at the Sept. 17 meeting. “And that slows traffic down, it gives them the feeling that they need to slow it down.”

Lila MacDonald, Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce CEO, presented updated renderings to the planning group at their Oct. 21 meeting.

MacDonald told the planning group that the North County Fire Protection District had been asked if the bulb-outs as proposed would hinder response; the fire district reported that they would not cause any issues, MacDonald said.

The Fallbrook Community Planning Group Circulation Committee approved the project and encouraged MacDonald to take the proposal to the board of supervisors, with Roy Moosa and Eileen Delaney recused, as they both sat on the revitalization committee.
