Sidewalk Packet from the County

By August 16, 2018 No Comments

Many neighbors have received a sidewalk packet from the county.  Hopefully we’ll soon receive the County’s “sidewalk packet” in electronic form, but for now, please find photos of the cover letter, response form, and maps at:

The packet also includes a twelve-page document specifying proposed work at each affected address.

We’ve requested that the response deadline be extended to mid-September.  Please see email (below) from RCHCA president to the county:

Dear Mr. Roshdieh,

Some neighbors have recently received a “sidewalk packet” from the County.
However, many have not. I have not received one, nor have I seen the
traffic operations and pedestrian safety report & recommendations that had
been expected in June.

My understanding is that the packet indicates that the deadline for
comments is in two weeks. However, many neighbors are vacationing in late
August. I am grateful to see that progress is being made, but concerned
that many in our community may question whether they were afforded adequate
opportunity to comment.

Please could you extend the deadline for receipt of comments until
September 14th? We can use electronic means to distribute your
request-for-comments to our community.

Thank you.

Sincerely yours,
James J. Pekar, Ph.D.
President, Rock Creek Hills Citizens’ Association
