Sidewalks at 1604 and FM 1560 - In front of new Apartments (14030 FM 1560, Helotes, TX)

This petition is in regards to the Apartments being built on the corner of FM 1560 and 1604. (14030 FM 1560) As construction progresses on the above mentioned Apt. complex, it has come the attention of surrounding community members that there is no plan to put in a sidewalk. Many Pedestrians and bikers can be found using the portion of FM 1560 between Bandera Rd (hwy 16) and loop 1604. There are currently signs posted on this road (FM 1560) to watch for bikers and to share the road but no provisions are being made for them to remain safe. Brandeis High School is close enough that on any given day students can be seen riding a bike to and from school. The pedestrians and bikers need a safe place to walk and ride! There was an assumed by many that there would be sidewalks included in the new commercial build!! As new construction is made on FM 1560, I believe sidewalks must be made mandatory! Our city (San Antonio and Helotes) is failing when it comes to being handicapped accessible in general. This is not a good start to connect more communities to the Leon Creek Trail system or to make our city walkable. The Bavarian Subdivision off of FM 1560 has a sidewalk to no where. If the sidewalk were to continue all the way to 1604 we would then have access to the work, trails and business. There are crosswalks already in place at 1604. Let's make our city more walkable!!!
