Missing crosswalk needed at Clare and Solomon
We are in need of your assistance. We have approached the office of public works multiple times about concerns regarding a missing crosswalk at the intersection of Clare Road and Solomon. These concerns have fallen on deaf ears. The city thinks it is not needed, but we have spoken with several neighbors and we all disagree. Many of us have experienced difficulty crossing Clare, which is one of the busiest intersections in the neighborhood with the fastest driving cars, located right next to the swimming pool and park. Families, children, or others needing assistance will often stand next to the road and drivers will not slow down or stop. A crosswalk will force the drivers to look for pedestrians and be liable to stop so that families and children can safely access the enmities and/or friend’s house located on the other side of Clare.
If you have a similar fear and belief there should be a crosswalk at this location, please sign our petition which we will deliver to city leaders for their consideration.
