Corralitas Drive: Trapped Atop The Hill

Photo: Gary Vlahakis, March 24, 2014. Oops, what do you mean you only have one means of access to your house and now you can't get out? (Click on photo to enlarge.)

This morning, I received a text from a neighbor that they were trapped at home.  The City was supposed to leave half the street unpaved so people could go up and down.  Unfortunately, they changed plans and paved the entire top of the cul-de-sac, leaving the homes atop the hill without access to the street.  One house, built in 1927, has no sidewalk access either.  Of course, neighbors believed the City when they said they'd be able to use half the street.  Both vehicles were parked in the garage. 

I'll speculate that because the cul-de-sac atop the hill is well below City standard size for cul-de-sacs, they had to pave the whole thing today. 

Hopefully they street will be done faster this way.
