  1. Once you enter the roundabout you have the right of way…. Not everyone knows that so still be careful!!! It can be confusing………

  2. Trees and shrubs cost money long term to trim water and up keep. Maybe artificial grass with bronze people sitting in park bench and kids playing out in the field. They have one in Beverly Hills and it looks nice. What’s wrong with some art in our town, it encourages creativity and besides I thought we lived in Awesometown. I don’t think our tax dollars should go to homeless shelters or outreach groups, that’s why they have fundraisers and donations.

  3. Alex Ramirez says:

    Whole things a waste of money

  4. Stephen Gold says:

    It’s gonna cause more accidents more tickets for the city. Maybe your art work should Be Kurt Caselli on a KTM that’s how I feel

  5. City leaders: Just plant a tree and some simple shrubs and flowers. Save the money on art and repave Newhall Ave from the 14 to Hart Park. And put a pedestrian crosswalk or bridge near Green Thumb. Too many j-walkers. Dangerous.

  6. In Fair Oaks Ranch, they’d build three houses on that.

  7. Rules of a roundabout are easy. Get from the street you’re on to the street you want to be on, even if it’s the same street, while following the circle counter-clockwise, and don’t hit anything in the process. Simple.

  8. Teddi Ballor says:

    Hart would be great. But really, do we need to spend more money?

  9. Pflag Scv says:

    “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
    Pablo Picasso
    Didn’t the city just spend $100,000 for Christmas lights on Main Street? Let’s invest our money in something that will last and express creativity.

  10. Roundabouts are more traffic efficient, I heard, but I have no idea of the rules that apply driving one! How about some education!

  11. These r the regulars that I see, I know there are a lot more but just saying that would be something our city money can go to instead of a stupid roundabout

  12. Why do we vote if it is a done deal? Why do that it will cause accidents and slow traffic. Instead of throwing our city money into that how about helping the homeless so they r not at every shopping center asking for $$. In granary square I have seen a whole family! By Sam’s Club too! By the Von’s shopping center there is an older guy who stands there (the one on bouquet) and by the Lowe’s shopping center there is a young couple!

  13. I don’t understand the reason for the roundabout in that location in the first place (?)

  14. What’s wrong with a tree and some flowers? I get no art work, but what Grinches voted for “do nothing”????

  15. Louis Esbin says:

    A four faced Rotary Clock would look great.

  16. Donn Miller says:

    Like our city counsel has nothing better to do. what a stupid idea. Don’t waste my money on you lame art. plant a tree.

  17. A life size bronze statue of Wm S. Hart on Fritz to rival the Statue in Billings Montana would be fitting.

  18. That’s an awful idea

  19. Kevin Miller says:

    How about a tree? Not an oak that takes 100 years to grow.

  20. Good. I’m sure there are plenty of things that are actually necessary to spend tax dollars on.

  21. I agree Rhonda. Michael, or the homeless shelter.

  22. I like the idea of some nice landscaping but do we really want people trying to check out an art installation when they should be watching the road?! I love the roundabout. The traffic signal was a waste of electricity considering most of the traffic continues on Newhall Ave. traffic from Main an 5th was minimal at best.

  23. Judi Jo says:

    IF the roundabout is a done deal, which it is…there are some beautiful things that can be done. Just NO STEEL BUTTERFLIES please (what were you thinking, anyway?). I come from OC, and the roundabout in Orange by Chapman University is quite beautiful.

  24. The roundabout is a waste. We live in the YS, not England. Just saying

  25. Why waste precious dollars?
