A MIRACLE WORKER IN WILDOMAR ?

At the City Council meeting on Wednesday August 13, 2014 the current mayor of Wildomar asked staff to look into signs so that residents can find the local library. After leaving the meeting having made a suggestion of attaching a sign to the existing stop light where a street sign normally hangs, I have been to the Mission Trail Library at least a thousand times since it opened July of 2001 and get there by rote, I decided to swing by the library on the way home.

The best I can do with my phone. The green sign hanging says library.

Low and behold within minutes of the mayors request to staff there in the darkness is a sign calling out to me, it says library.

Approaching the library from either the north or the south are international road signs for a library.

Granted some work needs to be done with the encroachment of shrubbery in the easement which blocks the sign
If you look close the sign is there.

and cleaning these signs as both could use it, but they are there.

While we are at the library there will be a meeting concerning buses and routes in the local area held on September 8, 2014 from 4-7 PM. Some people are concerned about the lack of routes in Wildomar but I think the more important item to be concerned about is

The lack of covered stops, have you ever stood in the baking sun or the pouring rain waiting for a bus. Some stops in this town don’t even have a bench. Advertising could be used to pay for maintenance, if it doesn’t violate the counties banner ordinance. One other thing this meeting is being proclaimed to set the routes for the next ten years, problem with that is this local meeting is held every year about the same time.
