Sharon Road sidewalks

Dear Council,

I understand you’re in the final stages in making your decision regarding allocation of funds to this sidewalk project.

As a La Estrada parent whose two kids walk this stretch between Alameda and Altschul twice daily, I can say confidently that it is only a matter of time before the current lack of safe sidewalks leads to a very serious incident.

I’ve personally witnessed two close calls with kids walking in the street to walk around obstacles, and needing to jump out of the way of passing traffic. Especially in bad weather, there is very limited visibility for drivers.

Please take action now to avoid an inevitable tragedy. I wouldn’t want to be that driver who mows down a child that is walking in my lane through no fault of their own. Please install sidewalks in this corridor as a matter of urgency.
