E.V. Peterson: ‘Irresponsible’ city
January 24, 2011
To the editor:
This is regarding Craig, the city of no sidewalks.
I, like Ms. Rohrich, am gravely concerned that our school children have to walk to school on the streets.
I observe, on a daily basis, children, joggers, walkers, etc., struggling to use streets that have no sidewalks to get around on.
I have lived in many communities, some smaller, some larger than Craig. All of them have sidewalk ordinances, except Craig.
Why is there no concern for the safety of our pedestrians?
Why are there no sidewalks required in this city?
It is a travesty that there is such a lack of concern for the safety of our walking residents.
One of these days, a child is going to be killed and I hope the parents sue the pants off of, not only the driver, but the irresponsible city of Craig!
