believe it or not! i don’t think i have seen a city get so suburban so quickly as columbus does. You’d think all the growth and money in the area i keep hearing about would lead to infrastructure improvements, but you really can’t tell that at all. other cities have clearly invested back into themselves as a result of population boom, seattle comes to mind. but columbus really doesn’t feel like anything is happening here.

Sidewalks?

You all desire sidewalks?

Here's how you get them...

Have your Mayor's wife trip and fall, where the sidewalk should be. Have her rupture a breast implant. Sue the City.

Ya know, if this didn't happen in San Diego, I wouldn't have material to add to this thread...

Cheers!

I should have added that I don't have a problem with sidewalks or along the main corridors, but I happen to live in a quiet neighborhood without sidewalks and I like it just fine that way. Very few cars parked in the streets, very little traffic.

don’t you think it isn’t super child friendly regardless though? i also like to go on runs and don’t like doing it with cars around. walking at night especially is dangerous in the street.

Well, move to a cul de sac


But yeah...we agree...big safety issue. Cincinnati has plenty of sidewalks but in Amberly Village not so much and there is a Jewish community that walks Section Road, which has no side walks once you cross into Amberly Village from Cincy proper, and they obviously walk in droves to nearby Synagogues on Saturday, and they could get smashed so easily.

There isn't a lot of traffic through here at all. It's a self-contained subdivision. We don't have a lot of people with kids either.
