Bay and Broad in Transition

Before the current construction began, Fred the Barber told us the story about a blind customer he recently pointed down the sidewalk on the east side of Broad St. heading toward Clark. The customer later reported that his seeing eye dog stopped abruptly at the corner and refused to turn left as directed. The clearance around the Garden center did not meet the definition of a sidewalk according to his training so he had to find a two legged guide to lead him eastward on Bay. Hopefully, the sight lines will soon improve for both pedestrians and drivers.

I agree- the public sidewalk should be PUBLIC and not a storage place for a bussinesses goods!
