Op-Ed: Walking in West Hartford

Andrew Lurie, a Bike West Hartford member and junior at Hall High School, wrote this Jan 20th “Op-Ed: Walking in West Hartford” that was published by We-Ha.com. In his experience, “walking in West Hartford isn’t great,” and disconnected or missing sidewalks are caused by Town policy. He writes: “While one might think that the town should have complete control over sidewalk locations and connections, it is actually the case that homeowners themselves have to vote to add a sidewalk to a neighborhood. If one appeals, the project will not come to fruition.” See the Town of West Hartford 2016 Sidewalk Policy and read more of Andrew’s op-ed at We-Ha.com.
