It’s a sidewalk, really

Dear Editor:Let’s be perfectly clear. The Castle Creek “Trail” has been long in the planning and it is being implemented to address a serious safety issue – music and Country Day students going to and from the campus on a winding road with no shoulders. Bob Raefelson, one of the lawsuit principals, has told me “that trail will never be built.” The Castle Creek homeowners don’t want it, safety be damned.It is almost a misnomer to call this a trail. It is more like a sidewalk, completely in the public right-of-way, so let’s not call it a trail. In fact, if the county put in curb and gutter and a sidewalk perhaps it could be more than four feet wide.Jon BuschAspen
