Mrs. Stuart Shestina it. Washington the subject of sidewalks on Glade Avenue is in limbo at the present time according to a staff aide to Council member Thomas Brush. On May 27, the matter was referred to the Public works committee. The committee is awaiting a report from the City managers office. In late april representatives from the Cincinnati engineering department presented a plan for a four foot wide Concrete Walkway at Street level along the Northside of Glade Avenue from Burney to Beacon and along the Southside of Glade from Beacon to Sutton. The vast majority of residents attending the meeting opposed the plan. Some did not want anything done to the Street others Felt a major Street improvement with curbing and Drain modifications was necessary. Following the meeting several property owners formulated petitions and canvassed the entire Street from Sutton Avenue to Burney Lane. The petition read Quot we the undersigned property owners of Glade ave. Wish to hereby go on record As being opposed to the installation of Concrete or Blacktop sidewalks or walkways on either Side of Glade Marion King a Glade ave. Resident presented the results of the Survey to the Public works committee. Property owners in 74 per cent of the dwellings signed the petition. Canvassers were unable to Contact 11 per cent of the owners. The balance 15 per cent Are the property owners who were opposed to the petition proposal or were unable to be reached after several attempts the Survey results state. In her summary. Is. King states that a it seems that the general feeling of most of the people we talked with is concern Over the drainage ditches loss of property frontage for the walkways or sidewalk decreasing the Rural Beauty of the Street through loss of Trees and shrubs Cost to the property owner for what they feel will be a makeshift eyesore to the Street and the Cost of everlasting repair to these she adds that the opposing Side to our viewpoint feels that this is a safety problem but challenges the statement that 264 children travel Glade ave. To and from schools in the area. The Cincinnati traffic department informs us that from 1968 through 1974, there were Only two pedestrian accidents on Glade is. King states. Also the City ran a three hour traffic Check during school traffic time and concluded that there was not enough traffic or crossing to warrant a crosswalk another Check revealed that there was not sufficient numbers of children or cars to warrant safety guards at Mears and Glade. James Frye of the Cincinnati engineering department said his department is still studying the subject. One particular area that needs some additional looking at is the request that the ditches be closed in he said. He pointed out that the department never returned a recommendation to committee on the first request for sidewalks. Instead they presented a plan directly to the Community. Since then they have been asked to report on the petition against a sidewalk. Frye said there will be some discussion before a report is made to committee.
