Contractors remove sidewalk sections on Ferry Avenue in Coulee Dam, under a canopy of red maple trees now targeted for removal. The city has called for a meeting of residents at 5 p.m., Monday, May 15, at 5 p.m. at Ferry and Grant to explain.

A long-awaited sidewalk fix is leading to the removal of many, if not all, of the trees on Coulee Dam's Ferry Avenue that have given the neighborhood its distinct flavor for decades, and the city set a meeting for tonight to explain the decision.

The meeting is set for 5 p.m. on the corner of Grant and Ferry, where the project starts.

The city notified residents along the street of tonight's meeting with doorhanger notices left at each residence on Friday, so city officials can explain and show on site what has happened to prompt the unexpected direction of what was supposed to have been just a sidewalk replacement project.

I did not attend the meeting. Though, I want to share some information regarding alternatives to concrete sidewalks. I'll just list the alternatives here: Crushed and compacted stone aggregate Concrete pavers (aka cobblestones) Brick pavers Permeable pavers If any of the above cause issues, it's an easy fix compared to concrete.
