Ask The Mayor
Q. - Is it likely there will be any funds to add and/or
upgrade sidewalks, especially leading downtown? Terrell is such an attractive
town with interesting shops downtown, but they can be hard to get to
Walking is good for health, and it is nice to walk
with a destination in mind. I like to take my sister for walks, and
she is wheelchair bound. We often have to roll her in the street because
there is no sidewalk or no access to a sidewalk. I hope this can be
addressed sometime in the future. Thank you.
Answer - We have a very extensive sidewalk project
in final planning now. It is funded as a part of the “Safe Routes
to School” grant program in partnership with the Texas Department
of Transportation. As the name implies the focus of the sidewalk construction
is to provide safety for children but everyone who uses these sidewalks
None of these sidewalks will be providing access to downtown. The City
of Terrell does not have any other sidewalk construction projects budgeted
at this time. As the economy continues to improve, hopefully we will
be able to fund such worthy projects.
