09/18/2008: "Letter On Crosswalk"


---------------------------------------
Crosswalk Not Needed


An open letter to the County Council:

I agree with Milene Henley...ANOTHER CROSSWALK IS RIDICULOUS !!!!!! I walk in and out of the Courthouse quite often as a part of my job.

Today, in response to the article regarding the crosswalk , I counted my steps from the existing crosswalk (that is directly in front of Vics Restaurant) to the place in front of the annex building directly across the street from the steps of the courthouse (from the Sheriff's office side of the building). It was exactly 27 steps.

Even allowing for the fact that I take rather long steps, it isn't more than 30 or so steps down to the crosswalk, and the same back up...a grand total of 60 steps! Surely, everyone who needs to make the trek from building to building can manage 60 steps! If safety is the issue, then the council should have considered that before purchasing the annex building and moving county business there.

Losing more parking spaces, to accommodate not walking 60 steps, is crazy.
