Sidewalks are being built in our community and requires certain maintenance, so they remain ADA compliant. We now have sidewalks going from Ruskin Way circle to Greenwood Rd. Currently construction for more sidewalks is being planned to go east on 107th Street from Blue Ridge Blvd on the north side of street to James A Reed Rd.
The sidewalks are great, but residents have a responsibility of keeping them clear so that pedestrians can use the sidewalks--including those that are pushing baby strollers and using assisted aid devices. It should be clear of parked cars, snow removal and grass clippings and leaves. According to City codes, sidewalks shall be maintained in a safe and approved condition.
