PUBLIC SAFETY

City Engineering and the Public Safety commission have independently identified key gaps in the safety of kids walking to school. Yet the mayor has only offered pandering discussion of a 6 year plan.  I’m sure it will make the elementary students feel better that their days of dodging of cars will only last into high school. Seriously with a budget surplus sufficient to create a real-estate slush-fund there is no reason not to accelerate the work now.

Regarding one particular danger to children, Council- member Boundy-Sanders clearly admitted in Tuesday’s meeting that the council’s vote to remove the safety barrier on 195th St. “was our screw up” (3:33 into the recording).

So why don’t they just return the situation to its former form until a proper design is implemented?  Remember that safety barrier was working for 30 years already.
