They live in Springdale where the police patrol frequently. Their rodes receive priority repair and traffic circles have been placed to slow traffic and prevent the type of drag racing that the rest of York is expected to put up with. Maybe Springdale will get some corner stores if the new mixed use zoning is approved?

Sidewalks are the path to getting mugged in York. Just axe them fairgoers who got robbed the other night.

Sometimes, the first thing people do when moving to the country, is to try to force it into a city. I say these types really ought to stay where they belong and stop trying to get us to pay for converting what is left of our decent country into anything like a city.

Lisa, your comments are right on. I lived in Madison and it's not perfect, but it's much more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly. York has the potential to be better. Sorry for all the ignorant comments your article has gotten.(I was especially amused by Reality Check's comment to "axe them fairgoers") Not everyone here is so negative. If you haven't already, contact your neighborhood association and the City Council president and set up a meet-up starting at church.

Sidewalks? Really, that's what we've been missing in this society?- laughable.

Yes, the paraphrased mantra of many liberals is that the root of America's problems is the lack of sidewalks through our rural areas and bicycle paths. This is why we are in a death spiral and the libs only know how to accellerate it, instead of stop it.

That breed of mugger usually doesn't use sidewalks...they wander down the middle of the street and dare cars to hit them. They be wantin respectin.

This reminds me of a man who believes in staying fit, Mr. Ray Abboud. What a guy. And the more sidewalks we have the more people can walk on them. It's the little things that add, like taking the stairs or walking the dog.
