Daily, I observe a large number of small children and schoolchildren who walk to schools from Ward 1 neighborhoods. There are no practical, safe alternate routes to walk to schools, churches, the post office, municipal buildongs, city hall, etc., from neighborhoods in Ward 1. The visibility is poor for vehicles, cyclists, and pedestrians alike on sharp, short turns (like 42nd Ave. And Decatur, back to Crittenden). I wpuld agree with many others in Ward 1 neighborhoods that too many strips pf roadways are high-risk zones for interactions between vehicles and pedestrians and bicyclists.
