So there I was in Richmond, Virginia or the outskirts. A place were hotels run free and the pedestrian might as well go Lyft or Ubber himself. Yes, I’m talking about Chesterfield County. Like I ended up there for some work. I was in a pretty decent hotel in a place called Arboretum. Yes there were trees there. It’s kind of like Kings Mill, but with more hills.
A 24 hour Gold’s Gym was right around the corner, but it was closed. Wow! No big deal, but the big question I had to ask is, “Where are the sidewalks?” There were none. And when I say none, I mean that the roads were landscaped to the edge of traffic. Never had I been in such a pedestrian averted place. Why? I don’t know. All I have to say is that it was a shame.
I understand that it costs money to make sidewalks. The question I want to have answered is: “How much money does it cost to have foot traffic not coming to your local businesses, churches and car dealerships?
There is an opportunity for some enterprising concrete contractor here. Plenty-o-sidewalks to be made.
The view is nice. Let’s make it people friendly too.
