More Nashville Needs Sidewalk spotting!
You may have noticed: compared to our sister cities of comparable size and population, Nashville is woefully lacking in sidewalks. Therefore, it is time to ask our elected officials to fund the Sidewalk Plan! We have talked about it long enough - now, we need to get building.
You can easily write to the mayor and your councilperson and ask that they stop talking about sidewalks and instead put the funding in place so that we can not only walk 100 miles but do so safely and comfortably!
Minneapolis, by comparison, has a population of 400K but has sidewalks essentially all roads on both sides. Nashville, with a population of >600K has less than 1/4 mile of sidewalk per mile of road and only on one side of the road! This does not make a healthy usable sidewalk network.
NASHVILLE NEEDS SIDEWALKS.
Nashville needs well designed, high quality, and uniform sidewalks with adequate green buffers to provide shade.
That is the goal of Shade Parade Nashville & The Sidewalk Foundation.
If you or someone you know would like to put in a regulation sidewalk in front of your home or development OR would like to make a donation to The Sidewalk Foundation contact firstname.lastname@example.org
