Noah Kinman started this petition to Town Manager Kyle O'Brien and

It is not safe for the residents of Rustic Knolls to access our community parks and schools without the use of a motorized vehicle.  There is no sidewalk connecting Rustic Knolls to Sunset Drive, a distance of approximately 500'.  Instead, there is a shoulder of varying width (the smallest section is less than 12") which requires pedestrians to walk or ride bikes next to vehicles, including semi-trucks, that are travelling at a high rate of speed (45mph or higher).  This is a very dangerous situation for our families.

I would like to propose the construction of a sidewalk connecting the already existing Rustic Knolls sidewalk to Sunset Drive.  This would allow families to safely access a road that connects to the local parks and schools. There are many families in Rustic Knolls with children who would greatly benefit from this project.  Easier and safer access to Sunset Drive would allow us to participate in community activities such as Walk To School Day, Swim Teams, and Kids' Fishing Day.

***Update 5/16/20: According to a member of the Town Council, the Town of Broadway is not responsible for improvements along this section of 259. We've added VDOT as a decision maker on this petition. However, there appears to be a lot of support for further sidewalks to be added throughout the Town, especially along roads leading to our schools and parks, which is why we are leaving the town officials on the list to receive updates. 

Thank you for your support and consideration!
