Letter: Complete streets

Hilary, we have a Complete Streets policy and have made some progress on making the community safer for people walking, on bikes or using wheelchairs. If you'd like to get involved in advocating for streets that serve all residents, I would invite you to join LiveWell Lawrence's Healthy Built Environment workgroup. http://livewelllawrence.org/148/Healt....

Lawhorn's Lawrence: Walking and waking at Rock Chalk Park

Thank you, Chad, for an article featuring one of the great things about the new rec center.

I don't think anyone in Lawrence would defend the contracting and construction mistakes. And neighborhood equity remains a real issue.

But the building is succeeding marvelously at supporting the health of many local residents of all ages and abilities. As a mom of three daughters, I'm especially excited about the expanded opportunities for girls. Sports are a proven way to reinforce and grow the self-esteem of tween and teen girls.

Topeka-based financial services company moving headquarters to west Lawrence; city moving ahead with ice rink; new affordable housing coalition forms

Why not keep the ice rink open through the entire winter? A longer operating period would help justify the fixed cost and give people more opportunities for physical activity.

Plus, downtown needs traffic in the slow months of January and February.

City commissioner proposes tax increase to fund bicycle, sidewalk projects in 2015

No. Current property taxes don't generally cover these costs.

You are right that retired people are especially sensitive to property tax increases. But some also greatly need transportation options that don't involve driving. It is hard to even walk your dog around the block when the sidewalks in your neighborhood are hazardous.

City commissioner proposes tax increase to fund bicycle, sidewalk projects in 2015

The plan would fund sidewalk repair and connections too. This would help anyone who walks and anyone who uses an assistive device such as a walker, wheelchair, motorized wheelchair or motorized scooter.
