"...and create a pedestrian friendly environment while ensuring that any development plans gain City Council approval"
What's with this pedestrian friendly environment? There are folks that currently walk on the street (some with dogs) because there are no sidewalks.
Let's see where can we start? How about Barbados between, Grapewood and Rockhill Courts. I know it is not in the development zone but it is used quite often by PEDESTRIANS. But since there are vacant lots on both sides of the street, the folks need to walk in the street. Interesting, and this is what we consider a pedestrian city. Is it because they are only single family homes in this area? Why pray tell is there no sidewalk? Is safety any concern, since it usually is the first item listed in many ordinances.
Again, where are the cities priorities? We want a pedestrian friendly city, yet we have miles of roadways without sidewalks because a vacant lot is present.
I say put on your walking shoes. Can we finish the build out by developing sidewalks on roads that were laid out at the island's infancy; so that we can truly claim we are sensitive to pedestrians?
Ah! I know the city wants more to accommodate commercial development and increase density in certain areas, but we may need to drive there. So are we to then create more parking to address the denser zone? Oh what are we to do? I forgot, we are a pedestrian city so we will walk there. Really? Or is it pedestrian traffic for that area only?
Recommendation: provide sidewalks in existing neighborhoods before we transfer credits and claim to be a pedestrian city. It might be a worthy goal in promoting this marketing campaign.
