Where would you like to see additional sidewalks and non-motorized improvements made in Upper Arlington?

We need sidewalks for safety on all major streets: North Star Road, Zollinger Road, Fishinger Road are the ones that come most swiftly to mind. These should be a top priority. Encourage walking by making it safer for residents to go beyond their own neighborhoods on foot!

Tewksbury Rd between Coventry and Northwest Blvd on the North side of the street. Tewksbury is a high traffic through street, used regularly by the Fire Department, parents taking children to Barrington or Jones, and motorists travelling East/West from Northwest Blvd all the way to Oxford Rd. Adding to the high traffic volume, there are a number of families with young children living on these two blocks (~24 between the ages of 2-12), as well as on-street parking allowed in both directions. These two blocks are always congested with pedestrians and vehicles.

McCoy Road is a good candidate for a bike lane or other type of on-street bike facility. The route connects several biking destinations: Griggs Reservoir, Oxford Park, Windermere Elementary, Thompson Park, Lane Road Library, Reed Road Park and Hastings Middle School (via Mountview Rd), St. Andrew School, Sunny95 Park and Greensview Elementary, COTA route on Kenny Road, and to Highland Drive, which provides access to the pedestrian bridge over 315 and the Olentangy Trail. Traffic on McCoy is light enough that it might be a candidate for a road diet, freeing up space for bike lanes, perhaps with some buffer or separation from traffic. It could provide the added benefits of slowing traffic on McCoy closer to the posted speed of 35 mph and make the unsignalized crosswalks safer to use.

Dear UA residents: We need more sidewalks in UA: Sidewalks were used by the Romans so people didn't compete for roadway with cattle. It's time our city came of age and for sake of all provided sidewalks throughout. The issue is bigger than the individual home-owner so decisions about use of the right-of-way should be made for the benefit of all and should be paid by the entire community. We need a 20-year plan so another century doesn't pass without sidewalks throughout. Start on the streets where pedestrians are most at risk of their lives.

Canterbury is a busy street with a good chunk of it within walking distance of numerous city attractions. There is a dead end sidewalk on a portion of the street that is farthest away from anything. To help people get to the pool (when it's done), Northam park, Tremont Elementary School, the library, fourth of July fireworks, Huffmans, the Old bag of Nails, and all of the businesses within Tremont Center, it only makes sense to add sidewalks along Canterbury to connect the length of the street.

Would like to see room for bikes/pedestrians to Whole Foods parking lot from Beaumont road. More congested now with new development and less room for pedestrian access to shops from Beaumont.

Mountview connects so many side streets from Zollinger to Fishinger. With the curves at the South end, it can be very dangerous for pedestrians. Additionally, many children use the street to walk to and from school at Wickliffe. Addinf sidewalks would make the entire area more pedestrian friendly.

The length of Mountview between Wickliffe Rd to Fishinger Rd has steep sides which fill with water after heavy rains. There's no room for pedestrians to walk safely along the side of the street if there's oncoming traffic; you have to step into yards or driveways. A sidewalk would assist those trying to get to Hastings or Wellington on foot or by bike. (Ideally, something should be done about the lousy drainage too.)

There should be sidewalks connecting the stores at Fishinger and Riverside to the surrounding neighborhoods. Sidewalks could increase the amount of costumers going to our local businesses and decrease the traffic in the area if there was a safe way to walk there.
