Here is the response I received from the City Engineering staff (complete with typo):

Hello Ms. Pckard ,
I apologize that my letter did not fully address all of your concerns. We did not take this project before the BTAC. The reason being that we did not consider that the bulbouts changed the street configuration. As stated in my letter, parking was allowed on Alta Vista, prior to this project. This street was also designated as a Shared facility, in the Santa Fe Metropolitan Planning Organization’s Bikeways and Trails Map. We did not feel that we changed the street’s configuration as it was a Shared facility prior to the project and continues to be one after the project. I will be at the upcoming BTAC meeting to further explain the project to the committee.

If you have any other questions, please let me know. Thanks.
