Sidewalks for Pettisville will be the topic and focus of a public meeting, Thursday, April 5.
At the meeting, scheduled for 7 pm in the Pettisville school cafeteria, proposed plans for sidewalks in the unincorporated community will be presented.
The sidewalks will be paid for by a grant under the Ohio Safe Routes to School program.
The program goal is “to assist communities in developing and implementing projects and programs that encourage and enable children in grades k-8, including those with disabilities, to walk or bike to school safely.”
A group of local government representatives and several area residents met Monday morning, March 26, to discuss the Pettisville sidewalk project.
Present were officials from the county, townships, and school district along with a representative from the engineering firm that is drawing the plans for the sidewalks.
Four Pettisville residents were also present to give feedback about the proposed plans.
Several possible plans for sidewalk placement and replacement were discussed.
The proposals will be discussed further on April 5 at the public meeting.–D.J. Neuenschwander
