Santa Cruz sidewalks

From: domainremoved <Kim>

I am a City resident and property owner for 20 years.

> I prefer an option which puts sidewalks on both sides of the street and which uses the city right of way.
> These property owners have no right to prevent use by the city regardless of the fact that they have put landscaping or fences (!) in the city's right of way. The option chosen should in no way take into consideration these encroachments and should be based entirely on what's best for the City residents as a whole, not on the interests of these individual property owners who have gotten away with putting their landscaping and fences in the City right of way!

>> Sidewalks on Santa Cruz Ave.? Yes. But Which Plan?
>>
>> Fellow Residents,
>>
>>
>>
>> How should sidewalks on Santa Cruz Ave. be designed? On March 10 (this Tuesday) the City Council will address that important question. Big billboards on Santa Cruz herald this event, so expect a big response. The object is to especially make Santa Cruz Ave safe for kids walking and biking to school, especially to Hillview Middle School.
>>
>>
>>
>> The Council will choose from 7 basic alternatives(scroll down to Attachment B). The sidewalks will extend from Johnson Street to Oliver.
>>
>>
>>
>> Note that:
>>
>> · Twenty-four (24) properties on the north side and 27 properties on the south side of Santa Cruz Avenue are potentially affected. (Other properties already have sidewalks.)
>>
>>
>>
>> · Many of these properties have landscaped the city right-of -way, and a few have fences encroaching into it. Of the property owners who answered the survey, most, not surprisingly, prefer those alternatives which don’t affect their landscaping.
>>
>>
>>
>> · Alternatives 5, 6, and 7 were added to the original list to accommodate these property owners.
>>
>>
>>
>> Three Questions:
>>
>> Which alternative(s) do you prefer?
>>
>> 1. Do you think it is OK for the city to reclaim some of its property from homeowners living on Santa Cruz who have put up fences and otherwise landscaped city land?
>>
>> 2. Do you think the City should reclaim allof its property to maximize public use?
>>
>> 3. Which alternative(s) do you prefer?
>>
>>
>>
>>
>> Please email City Council your thoughts on this important mattercity.council_at_(domainremoved)
>>
>> I would also like to know what you think.
>>
>>
>>
>> Thanks,
>>
