The current road presents
* a dangerous crossing for Marvin Elementary kids
* a hazard to those walking on the narrow sidewalks
* a highway through a residential neighborhood
* a barrier to cyclists, joggers and rollerbladers trying to reach the beach

      This petition drive has morphed into a movement, http://BeachRoadSafety.org. We've got a ton of momentum and a safer beach road will happen. Check out the site if you haven't already.

    2. Progress on Calf Pasture, but much work to be done

      David Marcus
      Petition Organizer

      First, the good news...thanks to the energy around this petition drive and the hard work of dedicated volunteers, support for the Calf Pasture Beach Road safety project has been pouring in from all directions.

      * The principal of Marvin Elementary has written a strong letter to the mayor endorsing the project.
      * The general manager of Cove Marina has signed his support.
      * In a poll of 23 neighbors along the road, 22 signed their support.

      Read about all these endorsements here: http://j.mp/HkKsub

      Now the challenges...we're hearing that the mayor's support for this project is not what it was last October when he spoke to our rally ( http://j.mp/HdnGuH ). It is now our job to change the mayor's mind and show him that Norwalk families want a street that is safe for pedestrians and bikes. We'll be brainstorming ideas on Livable Norwalk's Facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/livablenorwalk/

      My daughter lives very close and anything that will make it safe for her and my 2 grandsons is important to me. I also have walked along this road.

      Right now, the road is like an expressway to the beach. It needs to be made safer for bicyclists and pedestrians.

      A bit scary biking to the beach with two lanes of traffic coming up (SOOO fast) behind you!

      Having lived in Norwalk for over 20 years I recognize the need for a safer park and beach access road for the community. As part of a continuing effort to encourage ecologic alternatives, we should supprot bicycling.
