And just as I posted how they close that gate on Navarra and Greenhills Road for safety purposes, I’m riding my bike through there and just before I rode up a truck coming through that road hit a car and pushed it on to a yard.

It all makes sense now, doesn’t it?Image attachment

You are a brave one riding your bike on this road currently. The truck driver “did not see the car” that he shoved into the neighboring yard as seen!! Just as easily could be a person he “didn’t see”. Also these trucks are shifting gears up as they bounce down the cobblestone where the gate is. They are going WAY TOO FAST up this very narrow street!

Sara told you.

I’d like to have visible presence of SVPD patrolling during this time of construction.

This is a very narrow RESIDENTIAL road. Not even wide enough for two lanes of traffic if people park on either side of the street. It’s ridiculous to ever consider opening this road permanently. I understand people who work on Green Hills want the convenience. I worked there for a year, and it would have made my commute to/from the Vineyards more convenient, but I understood why. It was never set up to be a commuter corridor, only for emergency. Thankfully the city planners had that foresight. This accident is a great example of why.

Is that a Corrado? If so such a fun little car it is!

It’s been awful on south navarra the past 2 days... like a thoroughfare... I try backing out of my driveway and people are going down the street at 45...😢

Happily, the gate will be closed after today...right?? It was really dicey yesterday with 4 big trucks back to back coming up against cars traveling the opposite direction. Definately not walker/biker friendly.

Nooooo! Awesome red Supra from 86ish. Noooooo!

This vehicle was parked and then pushed something like 15ft forward before it landed here.

I work on Green Hills Rd, at Central California Alliance for Health, so I’ve been utilizing the street for the past few days and the one thing I realized is, the street is very narrow and not easy to drive through, the residents park on the street which makes it difficult for cars to navigate through. I saw that red car today and realized because of how it was parked the left side of the bumper was sticking out, sadly I’m not surprised someone hit it. I just don’t think people drive carefully through the street. I made sure to be respectful to the community, so I was careful going through; however not everyone has that mentality, in fact a FedEx truck was ahead of me, he zoomed through there so quickly, by the time I arrived at the stop sign, he was nowhere to be found. In my personal opinion, if they do ever open the gate to through traffic, they’ll need to widen the road and maybe add speed bumps otherwise drivers will just take advantage and speed through there and that’s not fair to the residents.

What a traffic mess at the corner of S Navarra and Granite Creek trucks blocking the intersection you would think SVPD would be controlling traffic at Granite Creek and Santa’s Village Road but no sight of them poor planing by the city of Scotts Valley

GREEN HILLS CAFE & THE FREEDOM OF GREEN HILLS ROAD & NAVARRA DRIVE

With the opening of the gate that allows traffic through and from Green Hills Road and South Navarra for a few days as they pave Green Hills Road, I decided to head out to Green Hills Cafe to check it out as I have been wanting to do for a long time. More on the gate in a bit...

The cafe is a cute place with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating with a cafeteria feel. I mean that in a good way in that you can easily do a grab and go with many of the things they have packaged up or order yourself a burger like I did and prepare it exactly as you wish.

They had lots of different things like chips, cookies, expresso, and prepared and packaged fruits.

The salad bar was a little too basic for me because I tend to love all kinds of things in my salads like nuts, some fruit, more veggies, mushrooms, etc., but nevertheless everything was fresh.

The burger I had was pretty good as I made it exactly how I want it. Today they had a Taco Tuesday special and I understand that they have other specials going on on different days.

While you may not be bringing your wife here for a romantic anniversary meal, this is a great place to stop by and grab something quick or enjoy out in their spacious outdoor patio area.

So the next thing I have to say is that I would think that if the gate between Green Hills and Navarra was open more often that more people would be visiting this place. In addition, people who live on Green Hills Road would have easy access to the Scotts Valley Market and other local places rather than having to go all around the other way off of Glen Canyon. It’s almost like that entire residential area off of Green Hills Road is somewhat secluded because of it. But yet I understand what the residents of Navarra may think about it, I’m sure that more traffic coming through their street is not a good thing either.

In addition, council member Donna Lind responded to a previous post on the gate topic as follows:

“When then Seagate built industrial buildings on Green Hills Road 30+ years ago bringing 2,000 employees, the development was approved with a condition to install a gate to prevent the huge traffic increase on So. Navarra. Engineers determined the roads and intersection at Granite Creek Rd couldn't safely handle the increased traffic. The gate can be opened for emergency situations such as past storms or as in this case, road work. Signs have been in place, press releases issued and residents notified of planned construction to add sidewalks & bike lanes.”

So there you have it, it’s actually for safety reasons and I totally get that. I don’t know that there’s a win-win situation for everyone on this one. But you really have to put safety first.

You say?

Seagate was not the first company on green hills rd, it was Interdesign at 1500, then became Plessey Interdesign, in the 1980’s.

FYI...Seagate had nothing to do with building that.

S. Navarra Dr. is already not a pedestrian friendly or bike friendly. I lived on S Navarra for 6 + years. Every time that gate was open there were issues of speeding cars, near misses and back ups at the 4 way stop and light at Baymonte. The road is narrow, no sidewalks, and on-street parking makes that situation worse. Opening that gate and joining the two roads would make a bad situation so much worse.
