Your Help Needed. Important Safety Issue before the City Council on 6/22.

Missing sidewalks make travel difficult.

Missing sidewalks make travel difficult along Huron Ave.

The FPRA has helped Councillor Nadeem Mazen draft a policy order for the Monday, June 22nd Cambridge City Council meeting, calling on the City to add sidewalks to the north side of Huron Avenue between Fresh Pond Parkway and the Haggerty School. As many residents know, this portion of the Fresh Pond side of Huron Avenue is completely without sidewalks, thus forcing people (including schoolchildren) to walk or cycle in the road on the way to and from Haggerty, Glacken Field, the Fresh Pond municipal golf course, the branch library on Aberdeen, and the West Cambridge Youth Center.

Here are more details about what we are requesting from the City to improve the safety of this busy road:

If this is an issue that concerns you as it does us, we urge you to email the City Council at or attend the Council meeting Monday, June 22 at 5:30 pm at City Hall to express your support for Policy Order #6. Call the City Clerk on Monday morning after 9 AM to sign up to speak (617-349-4280). And to get more involved, you can also contact us directly for more info.
