To Whom This May Concern,

In recent years, the villages of Monsey and Chestnut Ridge have seen tremendous growth in population. Many large families have moved in, bringing along little children with them. Although the Monsey and Chestnut Ridge roads were once equipped to be able to handle its population, they can no longer do so. And the aspect where our roads are lacking the most are the sidewalks. Since traffic on the roads has increased, so has human traffic. Our sidewalks are filled with people constantly walking and children riding their bikes, choosing to conserve energy and leave their cars in the driveway. 


Even though the shoulders of roads were once enough for the occasional passing pedestrian, there are now many, many people using the shoulder of busy roads on a daily basis. Roads such as the beginning of Saddle River Rd and Old Nyack Turnpike have recently gotten sidewalks installed to accommodate the pedestrian traffic. However, the rest of Saddle River Road is in desperate need of a sidewalk as well.

Saddle River is a main road, with constant traffic. The road is very narrow, and its shoulder, where pedestrians walk, even more so. Pedestrians are barely a foot or two away from the cars that race by on the road, causing concern for the safety of those walking as well as those driving the cars. 


We are petitioning for the construction of sidewalks on Saddle River Road, for the safety and protection of both pedestrians and drivers on the road. We want to feel safe letting our children walk on the Monsey and Chestnut Ridge streets without concern for their safety.
