        The San Carlos community near Cowle’s Mountain and Grossmont College is a great place to live, and one of its most appealing features is its walkability. Neighborhoods here are all lined with sidewalks, and trailheads into Mission Trails from the neighborhood are abundant. It is peaceful here, with amazing views, and you can’t look out your window without seeing someone walking or jogging down the street. 
         While the neighborhood is great for walking in theory, the sidewalks make it difficult and hazardous in many locations. The sidewalks are cracked and broken, and not level in several areas. There are many seniors and children in the area, and this poses an especially significant risk to them. Riding bikes or scooters and pushing strollers is also difficult under these conditions, and in some places impossible. 
         The repair of damage to sidewalks directly in front of their property is the responsibility of the homeowner under county regulations. However this applies to normal wear and tear or aging. Any damage caused by trees planted by the city, utilities, or grade subsidence is the responsibility of the City of San Diego to repair. The risk of injury is high, and the city has already been subject to countless lawsuits resulting in hundreds of thousands of dollars in settlements due to injuries caused by sidewalk damage in the last few years. 
         I am calling for the City of San Diego to come take a look at the damage in our community, and assess the risks it poses. You can see abundant evidence of where the attempts at repairs have failed due to shortcuts and temporary solutions. It’s time to thoroughly fix these walkways the proper way. It’s imperative for the health and safety of the community members. Please sign my petition to help me bring attention to this public safety hazard.
