Opinion: Let’s make a sidewalk plan happen

By Jane Dunhamn

Fayetteville Observer, Posted May 14, 2020 at 3:02 PM

Recently I viewed the Fayetteville City Council meeting of April 20. I am greatly concerned about the issue of public safety for the implementation of sidewalks for the city of Fayetteville.

On several occasions Councilwoman Tisha Waddell expressed the importance of sidewalks and the need to explore funding opportunities aside from bonds.

I agree with Councilwoman Waddell, and I move a step further in that the language should be for disabled people it is imperative that the city have a plan and a timeline to complete sidewalks for all streets.
