I would like to express my thanks to 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton, her staff and the county of San Luis Obispo’s Public Works Department for a very aggressive response to a traffic safety concern in Nipomo.

I have been a resident of Nipomo for 18 years near the intersection of West Tefft Street and Mesa Road. As the area has grown for these years, the traffic changes at this location have led to many incidents.

When this was taken to Supervisor Compton with a plan for action, the response from supervisor to road crews has been supportive. When work is needed to restore or improve any neighborhood there are many events in between idea and performance. The county Public Works Department has gone far beyond the expected response since the time of our initial contact. An impressive amount of planning work is already completed.

I look forward to witnessing the restoration of existing safety installations and completion of future installations to keep our Nipomo community safe.

Mark A. Machala, Nipomo
