Where would you like to see additional sidewalks and non-motorized improvements made in Upper Arlington?

I think it is obvious from the map that the entire River Ridge area is missing sidewalks. Streets with heavier vehicle traffic (especially ones those with COTA BUS STOP/ROUTES) should all have sidewalks for everyone to use. It is unsafe for walkers, bikers, and drivers to have to dodge each other and buses.

Sidewalks on Mountview and Kioka between Fishinger and Zollinger

I believe that any road with a double yellow line or a COTA bus route should have a sidewalk. Roads that have a double yellow line (especially Mountview between Fishinger and Zollinger) are used as a thru-way and have denser and faster traffic. As a pedestrian, it is terrifying to have to jump out of the way of oncoming traffic. I have stopped going on walks because I am terrified to push a baby stroller down these streets!

If children are expected to walk to school because it's "close enough" (within 1.2 miles of school) and yet there are not sidewalks between that house and the school then sidewalks should be built IMMEDIATELY. For example, there are children that are supposed to walk to Wickliffe Elementary from Springhill, Riverhill, Cresthill, etc. that are expected to walk along Mountview to get to school. Not only does Mountview not have sidewalks but it DOESN'T EVEN HAVE CURBS! We spend all this money to have bike paths and sidewalks to all the shopping and parks but it's appalling to me that kids aren't bussed to school and yet there are no sidewalks.

The section of Northstar Road between Guilford and Lane Avenue is frequently traveled by bicycles, pedestrians, and runners. There is a path from Guilford Road south on the OSU property, but nothing to the north. Though Northstar is 25 mph, it is a heavily traveled street and often cars travel well over 25 mph.

Dear UA residents: We need more sidewalks in UA: Sidewalks were used by the Romans so people didn't compete for roadway with cattle. It's time our city came of age and for sake of all provided sidewalks throughout. The issue is bigger than the individual home-owner so decisions about use of the right-of-way should be made for the benefit of all and should be paid by the entire community. We need a 20-year plan so another century doesn't pass without sidewalks throughout. Start on the streets where pedestrians are most at risk of their lives.

North star needs a sidewalk on the UA side, one that runs the full length

It would be nice to place a sidewalk between Tremont and Parkway, especially now that Tremont has been improved north of Lane. A lot of traffic here but no where to walk but in people's grass.

There should be more sidewalks and the residents whose home are next to them should NOT bear the total cost!!
Also I have seen sidewalks replaced 3 times, in the same place so I feel as if money is really being wasted. Children should be able to walk to school SAFELY on sidewalks the entire way and it is not possible for people living around Wickliffe and Barrington. ALSO, all streets should have CURBS, this should not be a "perk" paid for by the individual residents.
