The problem is that the city of Cape Coral, Located in Florida; does not have sidewalks in residential areas.

City funds and high taxes that homeowners pay should accommodate Cape Coral to have sidewalks for everyone’s safety use.

I started this petition because...
I am a mother who has children that attend school in Cape Coral, Florida. They go to and from school on the bus provided by the Transportation of Lee County Public Schools. Sadly in our city, a mother nearby my home tragically lost her 8 year old daughter in a hit and run by a vehicle, while her daughter waited for her school bus. Her daughter waited for the school bus on the edge of the street which is literally the grass before the paved road where vehicles usually drive over due to no barrier, or side walk to keep drivers away from the grass fields that belongs to the City of Cape Coral/homeowners. This horrible event occurred this year, March of 2019. Countless other scenarios have occurred in our city due to not having sidewalks for the public. I have personally lived in Cape Coral for 19 years and counting. Prior to, I lived in North Miami Beach, and I recall playing fearless on my fathers property away from the road, where vehicles drove daily; due to the safety the side walk provided. The safety for our community is of great concern. Especially for our children that wait for their bus at the assigned school bus stops. Some children have to wait without parental supervision. Some even have to sit at extremely early times when the sun has not rised. This petition could make a huge impact on our City. Amongst the loss of the little girl mentioned in that tragic story, a large part of our community has requested homeowners to place benches on their property for the children waiting for school buses to have a seat. Although the idea is sincere and without a doubt, a kind gesture; it’s not the solution. Benches will become a problem for our community due to hazards, the cleanliness of our properties, the safety during Florida weather conditions and even a hazard for drivers. We need a solution TODAY. We need to voice something great so that we can be acknowledged with futuristic accomplishments for our families. I am a long term Cape Coral Resident desperate to make a positive change for our community. Help me make a difference out of my 19 years and counting of living in beautiful Cape Coral, Florida. We need sidewalks!
