ATTN: Local foot-powered peeps

If I had to lament one specific thing about living here, it would be the lack of sidewalks on many streets. My children would love to walk home from school, but they don't, not because it's too far but because it's just not safe. My street and the one that connects to it are basically un-sidewalked speedways, where drivers regularly scare the dickens out of anyone foolish enough to try to navigate on foot or bike.

Hey! Guess whom I'm about to email!

Do you know of areas that need sidewalks, bike lanes, or greenways? Are there places where it is difficult for pedestrians to walk or cross the street? Do you know of an area that would benefit from a greenway or on-street bicycle facilities? If you would like to provide comments on potential projects, please contact:
