The Grover Beach City Council is slated to discuss the safety of North Oak Park Blvd. Monday evening.

Just last month, a man crossing the streetin the 300 block of N. Oak Park was hit and killed by a SUV.

Police say 33-year-old, Justin Dean Truman Kissinger was in an unmarked crosswalk when he was struck Jan. 21.

The night of the deadly collision, the city council was set to discuss the safety of Oak Park Blvd. but because of what happened, council members decided to continue discussion to another meeting.
