RE: Sidewalks on Santa Cruz Ave.? Yes. But Which Plan?

From: domainremoved <Katherine>

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 all of its property to
maximize public use?

3. Which alternative(s) do you prefer?

I think the answer is #2 - why should those homeowners be penalized because
they did honor the "right of way" good chances that they had to honor the
right of way AND pay for the sidewalk (as the put a new house in or
upgraded) - now others who did not honor the right of way are not having to
pay for the installation of their sidewalks - I think that is unfair and
that Menlo Park should have a no tolerance rule in regards to right of way

I like alternative 3 or whatever makes the sidewalk continuous as possible.

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
<http://www.menlopark.org/DocumentCenter/View/6645> (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 all of its property to
maximize public use?

3. Which alternative(s) do you prefer?

 

Please email City Council your thoughts on this important matter
city.council_at_(domainremoved)

I would also like to know what you think.

 

Thanks,
