Comments on purpose and need:
As of now, schools and a future rec area are on the other side of a major highway from the library. Not only would a pedestrian cross walk make it safer for kids and adult, alike, to cross 31, but would also maybe connect the community in a better way.

Comments on purpose and need:
We currently have no legal and safe way for pedestrians to cross on Hwy 31 at an interchange of four schools (Pizitz, Central, West, and Southminster) and a public library. The nearest crosswalk is at Hwy 31 and Canyon Road. To improve the function of our sidewalks for school children and active community members, this pedestrian bridge is a must. There are also trails behind the library that more citizens could access with a pedestrian bridge. For the safety of our residents and the connections and vibrancy we add to our community by improving pedestrian infrastructure, please build this bridge! And add more crosswalks in general.


Comments or suggestions on the project:
Please see Homewood and Mtn Brook’s bridge implementation project for inspiration. They are working together with Homewood City, Mountain Brook City, Birmingham City, the Jefferson County Commission, and state representatives and senators to create a safe passage over a busy ALDOT highway. We can do the same! Please build this bridge!

Will we have the opportunity to review and weigh in on the specific plans for the playground? Wald Park is my daughters' favorite playground "in the entire world". Please do not replace the incredible castle with something like the barren playground at Railroad Park. Also, ensure there is adequate shade and that the equipment that is exposed to the sun doesn't get too hot in the summer. Thanks!

Can you please tell me where the football, soccer, lacrosse, etc. fields are in "central" Vestavia? Where are the 8-10 additional rectangular fields, that the Brasfield & Dunlavey study showed the community needed, going to be?

I appreciate your response, but it seems as though the city has completely ignored the B&D Study that stated the city has an "acute" need for these additional rectangular fields. Additionally, 2 of the 3 "Primary Strategic Objectives" of the study were to re-position quality-of-life assets and to increase the capacity of City athletic facilities. The city has failed to listen to the recommendations of the study and failed to listen to its citizens concerning the need for more centrally located rectangular field space!
