Idea: Sidewalk

Patrizia Wilborn over 4 years ago

A Sidewalk is needed from Martin Walker Elementary along the parking lot, around the fence and connecting to the sidewalk on Dennis Street.

Get code compliance working on nuisance abatement, tracking down the absentee owners of abandoned or derelict buildings within the city limits. They're hazardous and unattractive, and the owners need to be held accountable.

Add on patios should be built from at least 60% new material and conform to certain standards of construction.

Many times trailers are parked on the narrow streets causing traffic to stop and let the traffic from the opposite direction pass safely. I believe boats trailers should be parked in the driveway or at a parking area. Most of the trailers that I have seen don't have large enough reflectors to show how wide or how far it sticks out in the street.

More parks for people to walk their pets or play with their children in all of the new neighborhoods would be really nice.

Getting across the some of the high traffic streets here can be really challenging. More and safer Cross-Walks could help, especially around the 190 areas and intersections.

Per my understanding the City Council is contemplating a new fee of $3.00 levied against all residents of which $1.00 of the $3.00 will be used to subsidize the potential sidewalk project. Instead of adding a fee why doesn't the council consider working in the best interest of its citizens and find a budget area to shave the needed dollars instead of taking the easy way out and placing the financial responsibility on the citizen. A few area's of saving dollars that immediately come to mind is our golf course - it's a loss leader and was poor decision in the first place considering Ft. Hood has 18 hole course and another area is the EDC. There are a few other area's that come to mind as well but I an'll refrain at this time.

The area of Skyline Valley/Skyline Flats needs a walk path and a park. The main streets are too busy and too many cars speed by to safely walk dogs or walk yourself for that matter. The original homes in that area don't have sidewalks so you are forced to walk on the street or in a ditch/side step that is overgrown.

Our area needs a Project Lifesaver program for children with autism and adults with dementia. Not only is this a FREE program through grants, it enables law enforcement to recover loved ones in a safe and timely manner. The closet PLP is almost 50 miles away and does not reach into Bell & Coryell counties. Please help bring the Project Lifesaver program into our area!
