Doing right thing on clinic

Anyone who has lived in this area for 10 years or more has seen traffic build to points of gridlock at some intersections.

Grass Valley is finally doing the right thing about it. On Jan. 28, the City Council voted to require the proposed 42,000 square foot Chapa-de project to complete an environmental impact report on the traffic issue. (Thank you, Steve Enos and Prism Engineering.)

Some questions still remain:

1. Why isn’t an independent review of traffic impact always required for all new construction before any approval is forthcoming?

2. Isn’t an F-grade (failing) intersection unacceptable to everyone? Or am I just being naïve?
