Apple Valley Sidewalks!
Hi Neighbors! We want to make our street safer for everyone who lives, works, and visits our lovely (but often highly trafficked) street. Please sign this petition with your name, and home address (or company name and address if you work on/near Apple Valley Road) to encourage City of Brookhaven to make sidewalks on Apple Valley Road between Sunland and E. Osborne a top priorty.
Thanks for your support!
FYI - Below are some of the highlights of the letter we submitted below to the lead contact at City of Brookhaven who is responsible for prioritizing the sidewalk projects for the neighborhood.
We are in desperate need of a sidewalk on Apple Valley Road between Sunland Dr. NE and E. Osborne Rd. NE. As you know, this stretch is zoned both commercially and residentially and is also used as a "cut through" by many drivers. With no sidewalks, this has created a very unsafe walking situation. I see large trucks (as well as many other vehicles) speed down our road daily next to children walking with their parents. At least once a week we see a baby carriage on the road next to a speeding vehicle. It is just a matter of time until someone gets hurt and probably killed. The blind hill and the narrow road just exacerbate the very dangerous situation. The low speed bumps have done nothing to slow reckless drivers down.
Currently the sinkhole on Apple Valley is being fixed and I understand they are repaving Apple Valley soon. We would love to see a sidewalk incorporated into one of those projects especially with the greatly increased number of daily walkers due to Covid 19 and the development of 2700 Apple Valley, the AVB complex. For everyone's safety, please help make this a priority sidewalk project.
