Businesses: Don't forget to clear your sidewalks

February 09, 2010

Within hours of this week's snow, the parking lots at my nearby shopping center were clear. Days later, the sidewalks fronting these commercial strips are untouched. The bus stops are buried.

Why don't the vendors or property managers take care of their sidewalks? For that matter, why aren't they fined for not doing so? It seems uncivil.

Boos to folks who clear their parking lot but make the poor pedestrian walk in the traffic. Kudos to the good soul(s) who cleared the sidewalk on York Road from Cedarcroft Road all the way to Gittings Avenue!
