Lack of sidewalks on Trinity is concerning

-A A +A

In regard to the NM502/Trinity Corridor, citizens who live on Arroyo Lane/Verde Ridge would like to address issues/concerns regarding the lack of sidewalks and the ability to cross Trinity Drive/East Gate Road with out going a half mile, or more, to get to a crosswalk safely in order to go to the grocery store or Atomic City Transit stops.
It appears that in the A2 and A3 plans that every area in the 502 corridor will be provided with sidewalks where none currently exist.  If that is true, we, who have never had sidewalks, surely look for a positive impact in our lives.
We will no longer have to walk through snow or weeds or miniature liquor bottles, or watchfully along a slope where we could possibly fall and then walk on what passes for a sidewalk along the Knights of Columbus just to get to the light at Knecht Street in order to cross safely.  
The same safety hazards will be eliminated when walking east toward East Park where one must walk on the side of the road in places so as not to fall down the embankment.
There are approximately 50 families living in the former Pine Glen Condos, on Verde Ridge, who have no safe pedestrian access or marked pedestrian crossings at this time.
