Aaron Schaeffer started this petition to Town of Brighton Rochester NY

We are asking for Brighton and Pittsford residents to support this petition as we work to solve a pedestrian public safety concern with East Avenue sidewalks. 

The Brighton community is in dire need of a new sidewalk development to complete the connection between the Pittsford sidewalk and the Brighton sidewalk that ends at Knollwood Drive.  This is a half block strip on East Avenue – addresses include:  10 Creekside Lane (property backs up to East Avenue), 3277 East Avenue and  3265 East Avenue – that has no sidewalk.  The Pittsford sidewalk project completed building to the end of their town line leaving this half block strip with no sidewalk before the existing Brighton sidewalk begins.  At the moment due to the absence of this strip of sidewalk pedestrians are forced to walk in the road which is 40 MPH.  Keep in mind this is a school zone and incredibly dangerous for our community.   This problem is accentuated with the changing seasons as leaves, outdoor debris, and snow piles up along the roadside forcing pedestrians further into the street.  This is especially a key concern for Allen Creek Elementary school students who are walking/biking to school under these dangerous conditions.  It is also a risk to our elderly residents who reside at the Friendly Home and all the Brighton families and children who seek to take advantage of the new Pittsford sidewalks to access the shops and attractions in the Pittsford Village.  

This petition will be presented at an upcoming Town of Brighton Public Works meeting with other supporting data justifying the development of this stretch of sidewalk.  In addition, we are working with 56th District Senator-Elect Jeremy Cooney and this petition will be presented to him as he works to secure funding for the project.
