City of Sunnyvale: Protect the Birdland Neighborhood

This petition had 108 supporters


We, the undersigned citizens of the City of Sunnyvale, certify that we are residents of the Birdland Neighborhood.

By the end of the year, 12,000 Apple employees will join our neighborhood.  These incoming employees and their visitors - as well as the many tour groups for which Apple is famous - will enter our neighborhood on a daily basis to either work at or visit the newly constructed Apple II campus. These additional cars, drivers, pedestrians, buses and bicyclists will change the character of our neighborhood and undoubtedly negatively impact our quality of life.

Therefore, we the undersigned citizens of the City of Sunnyvale, petition the City Council to proactively implement measures (i) to maintain the safety of our streets, (ii) to protect our residents, and (iii) to provide safe routes for our children as they walk and/or bike to and from their neighborhood schools.

The undersigned further request that the Sunnyvale City Council consider the following proactive measures for the protection of the Birdland Neighborhood. These proactive measures include, but are not limited to, the following:

1. Residential permit parking on all Birdland streets during the hours of 7:00am - 7:00pm, Monday through Friday.

2. Banning non-resident cars from turning left or right into the Birdland Neighborhood from Homestead Road during the hours of 7:00am - 9:00am and 4:00pm - 7:00pm, Monday through Friday. 

3. Banning non-resident cars from turning left or right into the Birdland Neighborhood from Wolfe Road during the hours of 7:00am - 9:00am and 4:00pm - 7:00pm, Monday through Friday.

4. Speed humps, or other speed abatement measures, on all streets in the Birdland Neighborhood which run North from Homestead Road and East from Wolfe Road. These include, but are not limited to, Nightingale, Meadowlark, Oriole, Peacock, Quail, Swallow, Inverness, Marion, and Elizabeth.

5. A mechanism by which residents, their approved guests, and the parents/caregivers/transportation providers of students certified to be enrolled in schools located within the boundaries of the Birdland Neighborhood may be identified (i.e., a sticker, a temporary placard, etc.) so as to permit entrance into and parking within the Birdland Neighborhood during restricted times of the day.

Finally, we ask the Sunnyvale City Council to work with residents to implement acceptable solutions to problems currently impacting the Birdland Neighborhood, including but not limited to traffic, speeding, noise, and debris.
