Plans for a permanent traffic circle at Equestrian Trail and Appaloosa Drive in Ahwatukee Foothills will be the subject of a public meeting with Phoenix transportation staff today, Sept. 29.

The meeting is set for 7 p.m. at Kyrene de las Lomas Elementary School, 11820 S. Warner-Elliot Loop. Topics of discussion will include the roundabout's design, landscaping and construction timeline.

The new permanent traffic circle could cost up to $350,000, with the money coming from a transportation bond approved by a city-wide vote in 2006, city officials have said. It would replace a temporary traffic circle that had been in place for about a year, after neighbors petitioned the city to install it because of problems with speeders.

Earlier this month, a five-member city transportation appeals board - consisting of representatives from several city departments, including Neighborhood Services, planning and the fire department - voted unanimously to reject an appeal filed by several neighbors against making the roundabout permanent.

A second temporary roundabout at 36th and Coconino streets is slated to be removed this week after neighborhood support fizzled out with no petition having been filed to make it permanent.

For more information, call Kerry Wilcoxon, Street Transportation Department spokesman, at (602) 262-4613 or kerry.wilcoxon@phoenix.gov.
