Please add sidewalks to Sharon Road!

Dear City Council Members,

My daughter walked the route from the University Park neighborhood (Stanford, Vine, and Leland) to La Entrada for six years. For the first two years that I walked with her, I cringed in fear when simultaneously on that stretch from Alameda and Altschul there would be two cars, a bicycle, and pedestrians sharing the narrow road. I’m so grateful that there have been no accidents, but I worry it’s just a matter of time. Please do the right thing now before there is a tragedy. I also feel the sidewalks should extend all the way to Santa Cruz ave.

I also feel the useless crosswalk on Santa Cruz near the cemetery should be relocated to connect Oak Ave with Sharon. Our neighborhood families have witnessed so many near accidents at this junction. The children, and adults, RARELY walk down to the crosswalk and then backtrack to Sharon. There is clear visibility from both directions if the crosswalk is moved to the intersection of Oak and Sharon. Again, please do the right thing before there is a tragedy.

Thank you.

Cindy Tipton
305 Stanford Ave.
