Sidewalks on Santa Cruz

I live on Hobart St off Santa Cruz. I am 80 years old and still walk
downtown sometimes.

I favor Alternatives 5 and 6 (don't care which). Even at my age I
can afford to cross Santa Cruz once or twice if there are sidewalks
all the way down one side or the other. I favor keeping as much
space as possible for vehicle traffic while providing safety for
pedestrians and bicycles. That means one sidewalk, not two.

I think I would prefer some arrangement which allows as much grace as
possible to those who have "improved" City right-of-way, but
physically reclaims the right-of-way immediately in the event a
property is sold. This should of course be in writing somehow so it
comes as no surprise. Eventually, then, the entire right-of-way
should once again be available for optimal traffic use.

Of course, "eventually" could be a long time; we have lived in this
house since 1969, for example.
