Sidewalk waiver is bad policy for Chesterton

Voice of the People

In Tuesday, July 11ths sidewalk waiver article, town council member, Mike Bannon, was quoted: Ive seen sidewalks from nowhere become sidewalks to somewhere.

Its too bad the Chesterton town council sentiments didnt reflect this attitude when the new WiseWay was granted its no sidewalk waiver. There were also no plans for a right turn only access lane on Pioneer Trail from WiseWay. So, not only is there traffic control back-up problems but pedestrians and bicyclists are at risk.

Hopefully at 5th and 1100N the town of Chesterton wont be making the same short-sighted traffic and waiver decisions.

An observant citizen,
