Sidewalk needed to connect communities

Part of a series of letters submitted by Grade 4 Fruitvale Elementary students as a class assignment.

I’m passionate about riding my bike. I would love to ride my bike to school, but I live in Montrose. There is no sidewalk from Montrose to Fruitvale.

It is not safe for me to get to school walking or on a bike without the security of a sidewalk path. As many people live in Montrose and either work or go to school in Fruitvale, I feel this will help our community to get fit and stay safe. I am hoping that the mayors will spend their money on a sidewalk connection because the value of one person’s life is priceless.

I look forward to seeing construction in my area soon. Thank you.
