Pin at 37.346671, -122.03373 (This is a Yield intersection and it should really be a Stop (or a 3-way Stop). People travel in both directions of Yukon at a high rate of speed and it's impossible to turn left from Cheyenne safely without stopping to see cross-traffic.), Pin at 37.345503, -122.033697 (Yukon Drive between Cheyenne and Alberta is dangerous during commute hours. Drivers travelling southbound on Sunnyvale-Saratoga will regularly cut over to Yukon Drive at Cheyenne and race down Yukon at 40-50 mph (25 mph zone), turning left on Alberta to rejoin Sunnyvale-Saratoga, bypassing a few seconds of traffic.Yukon needs traffic calming, whether it's speed bumps or literally returning Yukon to it's former divided state where there was a full traffic block at Crater Lake Ct. This street is being abused and it's only a matter of time before an innocent child pays the price with their life.), Pin at 37.343029, -122.034148 (Coming South on Yukon, this intersection is difficult to manage. It's very hard to see left down Alberta far enough to safely turn left without getting into the Westbound lane of traffic. This is partly because of the high hedges on that corner that reach too far to the sidewalk and partly because cars driving Westbound on Alberta have just turned on from Sunnyvale Saratoga and are travelling too fast, making a left hand turn difficult.Making this intersection a three-way stop would help people navigate this intersection safely and would also discourage Alberta's extremely problematic use as a 'faster Homestead' during commute hours.), Pin at 37.346654, -122.034159 (This is a highly valuable pedestrian access but it is rarely if ever maintained by the city. It needs illumination to prevent drug transactions and graffiti. My wife and I have taken it upon ourselves to install solar lighting in the walkway and replace the lights when they get vandalized or stolen. It would be nice if the city put in some more permanent lighting to allow students travelling to and from adjacent Nimitz Elementary to do so with a feeling of safety.)

9. Other comments you would like to share about Alternative 2:
I would like to see all open space elements be inviting and usable to people. Many times the open space is not inviting and people ignore it. Much of the open space at the community is not used at all. The open space should be easily utilized by casual users as well as organized events and perhaps small vendors to encourage people to linger on weekends.
