We have a new sidewalk! The Board has been working with Orange County to complete the sidewalk running through our community and connect it to the sidewalk on Lake Pleasant Drive, creating one continuous walkway. It is now installed and ready to use.
When our community was built, the sidewalks ended one home short of Lake Pleasant Drive. Pedestrians that walked on Lake Pleasant Drive had to leave the sidewalk and either walk on the road or on the grass to get to or from the sidewalk on Lake Pleasant Drive. This could be challenging and unsafe for those unsteady on their feet or using motorized devices. Now, pedestrians can safely walk through our community and to Lake Pleasant Drive while staying on the sidewalk. In addition, our schoolchildren now have a surface to stand on while waiting for the school bus in the morning.
Next up, complete the landscaping around the new sidewalk.
