Ridley Park's Online Digital Community
When I was a public official in my last hometown, I used to publish any comments that I wrote out (though I usually embellish when they are spoken). Here are my written comments from last Wednesday's Council meeting:
I want to thank Mr. Catania for the chance to discuss the ongoing project to replace the bridge over the creek along Hillside Road. That project includes an examination of a sidewalk along the south side of Hillside, which is depicted on the draft planning documents recently published by PennDOT on the internet in mid April. When I asked Mr. Catania about the width of the land between the creek and Hillside, and the apparent lack of width needed to place the sidewalk per the draft plan, he indicated that a safety review would be conducted and if the wall of the creek needed to be modified, it would be considered at that review. As the strength and safety of that creek wall is of critical interest to Hillside residents, I hope we'll be kept informed of the results of that safety review. Again, my thanks to Mr. Catania.
