Mayor Sam Adams' sidewalk plan
This ordinance has undertones of classism that should not be in our laws. Let's all work together to dismantle classism in our community. Our sidewalks are for everybody, not just people with money and houses, to be able to use, enjoy and feel safe on. There are laws that already exist that will keep us all safe on our sidewalks. Extra sidewalk laws have been shown in the past to target people who have no place to go and have been deemed unconstitutional. People without houses need to be sheltered from the elements and the street, if only by a wall and an awning. Fund affordable housing! Housing means opportunity and a place to be!
