- Call to Order & Roll Call
- Discussion: Sidewalk Gaps
- DC Code lists several criteria for prioritizing sidewalk gaps (https://code.dccouncil.us/dc/council/code/sections/9-425.01.html), including (1) missing sidewalks in school areas; (2) routes that provide access to parks and recreational facilities; (3) transit stops; (4) locations where the absence of a sidewalk creates substantial pedestrian safety risks; and (5) roadway segments for which residents petitioned to have sidewalks.
- You can see a draft sidewalk gap map from DDOT here: https://www.arcgis.com/home/webmap/viewer.html?webmap=750d622175234278b20171c66806c6ed&extent=-77.129,38.8478,-76.8755,38.9596. While this map might provide some help in identifying priority areas, I will note it’s not final and may not have full/accurate information for all areas.
