The Cimarron Hills Fire Department (CHFD) has reviewed the Peterson / Hwy 24 Roundabout Project and is providing the following comments. This is a request for a review of a comprehensive “Traffic Safety Plan” for each phase of roadway construction. This plan is crucial to ensure the safety of workers, motorists, pedestrians, and emergency vehicles. CHFD requests the applicant address the various aspects of traffic management, signage, and communication to minimize the risk of accidents in the construction zone.

Safety is a priority for everyone involved in or affected by roadway construction. Regularly review and update the traffic safety plan to adapt to changing conditions and ensure continued effectiveness. Additionally, involve relevant stakeholders, including local authorities, transportation agencies, and emergency services, in the planning and execution of the traffic safety plan.

It appears that this project would eliminate the landscape buffer on the west side of the Super 8 motel on the east side of Peterson Rd NE of the intersection of Peterson and HWY 24. It appears that several parking spaces would also be removed and the drive aisles through the parking lot would be significantly reduced to the extent that this site would become nonconforming to the El Paso County Land Development Code. Schedule Number: 5408000052 for the property in question. Staff recommends a site development plan is submitted to redesign the parking lot on this property and replace the landscaping that will be removed.

Staff notes minimal impact to all other properties located in the County as a result of this public improvement project.
