WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??

CITY OF PEORIA

People in Peoria heard a lot about new sidewalks. The City just put one in on Mt. Hawley Road going into High Point. We were told this was for safety of kids going to Kellar School etc. However, we now have the new sidewalk with two mailboxes cemented into the sidewalk. I can see a child riding a bike and not paying attention until he smashes into a mailbox. PEORIA, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING??? There are sidewalks on the south side of High Point Road and the mailboxes are not in the sidewalk. Actually, has anyone EVERY SEEN mailboxes in a sidewalk. Good luck if they get hit and the posts have to be replaced -- out come some of the new sidewalk. The residents of High Point would sure like an answer to this OMG moment.
