RE: Change of Traffic Control for Vistoso Highlands Drive

Dear User of Vistoso Highlands Drive,

This letter is to inform you of an impending change in traffic control along Vistoso Highlands
Drive. Starting February 1st, 2024:  No Standing, Stopping or Parking will be allowed between the hours of 5:00am to 9:00am for Vistoso Highlands Drive from Rancho Vistoso Blvd. to the entrance gate house at Stone Canyon. The only exception to this traffic control is after the Stone Canyon community gate is
opened, and vehicles are intermittently held-up during check into the community.

This measure is being implemented to mitigate the traffic congestion and noise imposed on the
adjacent neighborhoods to Vistoso Highlands Drive. As the Town Engineer, the authority to
place such restrictions is granted via Town Code, Section 3-2-4 and 11-3-3. If you have
business within the Stone Canyon community, and stand, stop, or park a vehicle along Vistoso
Highlands Drive before the Stone Canyon entrance gate is opened, this will constitute a
violation of this new traffic control guidance.

In addition, all neighboring areas are private, and any standing, stopping or parking on private
property will require written permission from the owner. And if other public streets within the
general area become affected as staging areas for access into Stone Canyon, expect them to
be signed and controlled similarly.

It is expected that any individuals needing permission to enter the Stone Canyon
community will not arrive in the area until after the gate is opened, or you will be in
violation of this new traffic control.

Thank you,
Paul Keesler, P.E.
