While I'm Thinking about it-Sidewalks in Glen Rose

19 December 2008 at 2:38:45 PM

Barbara Mitchell  told me a couple of weeks ago that there will be a planning committee hearing coming up in January, can't think of the formal name it's called, but basically, it will be to discuss the direction the city of Glen Rose wants to go with spending that 4b tax money and various plans and designs. I don't live in the city, rather the county, but I do shop in the city, so feel I have input into how I'd like it to turn out. Someone suggested this before and I completely agree with the suggestion, that we should have continuous sidewalks in the city that allow any person to walk from the schools to downtown, to the park across the bridge, down along Barnard Street to the park, and, best, a sidewalk that would go across 67, with a walk stop light at Bo Gibbs and 67 to the soccer park and all the way up to the ampitheatre. Now I realize that's a lot of sidewalk. But I think it would be money well spent because it would make the city of Glen Rose a walk-friendly community that would encourage more people to get out of their cars, for example, and look around (including, for the merchants... SHOP!)  I'll post about this again when I see the date, but I would hope that everyone that gives a hoot about this community, with whatever opinion or design, will try to show up and speak your piece.

It would also be nice if they would fix that one area behind the shop (As You Like It), it's all hacked up and sometimes, the people that park there (I think it's Anderson's) block the sidewalk (if there was one) completely.  I, actually, think that is a city ordinance violation, but I'll have to look into it to be sure.  At any rate, I noticed on girl's night out (this past weekend) that he had pulled up and not completely blocked it, which made our little trip down to the next little shop a bit easier (Shop Around the Corner), but it would be nice if it at least sloped so it was wheelchair accessible, instead of a person in a wheelchair having to go off at the corner, down the street (on the road itself) and then up the ramp at the Shop Around the Corner to get in there.   But that's just ONE shopper's opinion!

So funny you mentioned that. I was just downtown and thought I'd go get some things at the As You Like It store. IIt was CLOSED. I considered going and walking around the square, but it's so darn cold today. course that has nothing to do with sidewalks, but if you want business, you have to be open... for.. business.
