We have had 50 responses from the Sidewalk Survey. If you have not had a chance to fill it out - please take a max of 2 minutes to do so. There are 10 questions. Link below.
As an update, we had a very good meeting with Public Works today (5/21/2014). There are a few ways to go regarding Bowling Av in particularly that I will be writing about over the next few weeks. Most importantly, our Sidewalk Priority Index score, near West End is a 45!!! This is very helpful to Bowling as they are currently considering projects in the 20-30 range. Notably, the entirety of Bowling is not so high. Our SPI does drop to around 6 from Woodlawn to Woodmont. That being said, Public Works attempts to fill in gaps in sidewalks 1st - something to be considered as Woodmont is about to be repaved. If there was even a bit of sidewalk completed at Bowling and Woodmont - this would create a gap - and a lot of momentum to complete it.
Important next steps include:
Calling customer service at 615-862-8850 and requesting a sidewalk on Bowling. Express the reasons it is important to you. This action documents the requests of the neighborhood. The more people who call and request - the better. The squeaky wheel effect is part of the process.
