You may have seen sidewalks going in on the east side of Westfield Boulevard between 83rd and 86th Street. This section of sidewalk connects the walkable streets to the south to the North Central High School campus, Jordan YMCA, adjoining retail and more. The sidewalk was built as part of a 2021 Neighborhood Grant Program. Nora Alliance had previously identified this as one critical area for pedestrian and walkability improvements among several in our community. We made Washington Township aware of the grant opportunity and provided them with documentation supporting the need. They applied for the grant and were one of about 12 organizations citywide awarded matching funds to build this key infrastructure. Many thanks to Washington Township leadership and the city for making this happen!
Thanks also to Paragon Realty, Jordan YMCA, Butler Fairman & Seufert Engineers, and other neighborhood stakeholders for their continued interest and engagement with projects like these.
