 County responds to outcries regarding traffic safety 
County is responding to resident complaints regarding high speeds of vehicles coming off  the bridge into San Miguel and also the lack of visibility for those coming out of Verde from Jazzy Town. 
They will be installing a speed sign with a device that shows your present speed as you come down the bridge into town.  The speed there is 35mph and the reminder devices seem to be effective in reducing driver's  speed.
New "no parking" areas have been designated in San Miguel on River Road (14th St) on the south side of the road  from Bonita to 100 feet beyond Verde.  They will soon be marked with a red curb. This should help with visibility and safety.
There is also new red curbing at the mission to make sure people are aware that those areas have been designated "no parking" for quite some time but drivers have not paid attention to the signs.

In need of some sturdy shelving or display case for your business?  Go to Caledonia Adobe to check out what's available for rock bottom prices!

   Glancing Back,
Remembering Our Heritage
The San Miguel Resource Connection has taken on the San Miguel History Project and this webpage as its major projects.  It is intended to preserve as much of the San Miguel History as possible and share in a way to encourage others to take an interest and understand the rich heritage of the community.     
This month is  again on earlier times in San Miguel, about 100 years ago!
Thought you might be interested in some of early entertainment that was important for residents of the day.
