What about the sidewalks?

Lengthening the Millennium Trail is a pretty project, but shoddy city sidewalks also need attention

Dear Sir:

Lengthening the Millennium Trail is a pretty project, but shoddy city sidewalks also need attention.

Example: the never redone dig-up of crumbling Munroe between Park and Lazelle, a drainage ditch after precipitation; the walk up from Thomas to Mountain Vista, which after rain is a swampish bog at the top and treacherous otherwise for the fist-sized, ankle-breaking rubble dumped on the slope in the pretense of upgrade; the risible redo of the bottom of Kenney, whose bike lanes, meant to pass as sidewalks, too, are already ignored because of miserly paving.

If any residents have more examples, fill the City’s bucket list to chide it into action. Hopefully, it won’t overflow and be dumped into the river of neglect.

Even short funds, the City could entice ever-ingratiating Enbridge and new man Donny van Dyk to lather up extra greenwash.
