Construct Sidewalks on Piedmont Drive in Auburn, AL

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!

This is a petition to the City of Auburn, AL to finance and construct sidewalks.

Most phases of the Camden Ridge neighborhood have sidewalks, but one section of Piedmont Drive, the main road in the neighborhood, was constructed without sidewalks. 

Sidewalks separated from the roadway are the preferred accommodation for pedestrians. Sidewalks provide many benefits including safety, mobility, and healthier communities.

Safety. Roadways without sidewalks are more than twice as likely to have pedestrian crashes as sites with sidewalks on both sides of the street.

Mobility. Pedestrian facilities likely increase the number of trips made by walking, particularly in areas with mixed land uses. As this sidewalk would tie in to planned pedestrian facilities on Donahue Drive, its construction will enable goals of supporting multi-modal transportation in the area.

Health. Completing this facility will enable a healthier neighborhood. Research indicates that people will walk for recreational purposes if a facility is provided. Recreational walking is one of the easiest ways for people to get the recommended allotment of physical exercise each day. Moderate exercise, such as walking, contributes to both physical and mental well being.
