"@Michael S. Taddei, Thank you, I agree. Certainly the "project" needs to be reevaluated.  Let us focus on the "safe routes to school" aspect.  The sidewalks around the School and Municipal properties are in poor…"

"The main safety issue, in my opinion, is the dozens of kids that walk out in the street up Hillside Road at the end of each school day because they don't have an option to use sidewalk on Hillside. From the bottom of the hill, there is only…"
