Cape St. Claire Road features some beautiful views along the hilly street to the coast of the northern peninsula. But it's not very walkable. There are no sidewalks.
Just before the Strawberry Festival's parade on Saturday, I parked at Graul's Market. I walked along with the parade, taking the photos you see in the photo gallery. But after the festivities were over, I walked all the way back to Graul's. In doing so, I realized that the Cape community could probably use some sidewalks.
I passed by a few groups of people encountering the same issue of dodging cars, and walking along the sloped lawns. I asked two of these people the same question: "Does this area need sidewalks?" And I got two very distinct answers: "Yes, that would be great," and "Absolutely not."
The difference of opinion seems to stem from a few factors: Maintenance of the sidewalk and cost being the negative factors, and the safety of residents and children being the positive factor.
So what do you think? Let me know in the comments why you voted the way you did.
Voting will end at 8 a.m. Friday morning.
