Letter: Trail closed? Put up a sign to let public know

From: William A. Pumphrey Jr.


In February I contacted the city engineer’s office and suggested if the People Trail is closed that they place notification (barricades) at the head of each trail indicating this. This was not accomplished. Mid-March it had still not been accomplished. Near the end of March, even though the mayor has been notified, it still is not done.

It seems like the city’s response to such issues is taking a stance of deliberate indifference to those who use a wheelchair. I’m sure everybody enjoys driving down the road for miles only to find out you have to turn around and go back from where you started.
