Eastridge Meadows is located off of AA highway. It has 220 families who live within the Blue Springs city limit, but do not have access to parks and sidewalks as they should. This neighborhood is located off AA, just east of Wilbur Young Park. There is no shoulder on the road, and it is unsafe for pedestrians to travel safely along this highway. The city is aware of this issue, but has neglected to take any action after numerous inquiries from residents for more than 15 years. City council has been contacted, and the response is that it would be too costly to put in a sidewalk and that part of the land is county owned. After speaking with MDOT (Missouri Department of Transportation), it was determined that the money is available to Blue Springs to make improvements, it just isn't a priority. They are spending it elsewhere. There are numberous residents, including children and teenagers, that walk along this dangerous road because it is the only way to get to the newly renovated park nearby or even to get to school. This is unacceptable!!! Please sign this petition if you support these citizens and their need to gain access to city ammenities. It is only a matter of time before someone ends up being killed on that road, and the city should take responsibility for this necessary improvement.
