10-foot-wide sidewalk for Milan Avenue?

Norwalk city council members offered a lukewarm response to a pair of public-works related projects presented at Tuesday night's work session.

The first resolution involved authorizing the application for transportation enhancement funds.

This resolution primarily deals with a proposed 10-foot-wide, multi-use sidewalk on the west side of Milan Avenue from League Street to Main Street.

Council members voiced a number of concerns involving the multi-use sidewalk, including who would maintain it, who would be responsible for shoveling it, and what happens if the sidewalk needs repaired.

A second resolution which wasn't greeted with much enthusiasm from city council involved an application to the Ohio Department of Transportation for Safe Routes to School funding for the non-infrastructure portion of the project.
