SAFE Issue#11 - Safe Sidewalks - Alameda - North of Y

Provides full Safety Issue details as PDFThe walkways on Alameda from the Y to Avy Avenue are extremely narrow, sometimes 18”, are in extreme disrepair, require single file walking, strollers and wheelchairs must use roadway, and traffic signs, poles, and fire hydrants are placed in middle of walkway, even for new construction.   It goes without further discussion that there are no ADA compliant sections.

Thanks so much for being advocates about these issues! This is so important and something the County needs to take seriously. You have my support!

San Mateo County labels this area "urban" in county planning documents but its infrastructure does not approach the standard of Menlo Park streets in the immediate vicinity. The lack of maintenance in the unincorporated area of WMP again raises the question "why was this area not incorporated into MP when Sharon Heights was developed?" Is there a way to repair this mistake from the 1950's so that the WMP neighborhood does not take on all the chaotic characteristics of North Fair Oaks...the other section of MP that remains in county jurisdiction.
