Part of Cleveland Street still has ‘dangerous’ sidewalks | Letter

  • Apr 10, 2015 at 2:24PM

Editor’s note: The following letter addresses the recent Cleveland Street improvement project. Maybe now they can find the money to replace the dangerous sidewalks along Cleveland Street, east of the new stretch. Though not very old, the sidewalk has surrendered to the trees and weather, and has heaved up all along the way, between the cement, the inset bricks and the poor attempt by the city to fill in the huge gaps with asphalt. There is not one area of flat pavement, and nowhere else to walk but on extremely uneven sidewalk, and there are many places where there is suddenly a several inch difference in height.

This report states that we tax “the poorest residents at 16.8 percent, while taxing the top 1 percent at only 2.4 percent.” Working families, who are struggling, to get by are shouldering a disproportionate share of the cost for our state’s basic services.

  • Apr 3, 2015 at 3:00PM

Having keenly followed transit development in the area for some time, I found Sen. Andy Hill’s inability to properly represent his constituents with the ST3 funding measure (SB 5987) to be rather disappointing.
