Description

A recent tear down replaced with a yellow townhouse, left the intersection of the sunken driveway and the sidewalk dangerous for pedestrians, especially if you're in a wheelchair or walking on ice. The sidewalk was dug out for the driveway such that the elevation as you're walking past the house goes down 2 plus feet! Also the sidewalk isn't flat like the rest of Arlington it has the same slopes as the driveway. The sidewalk needs to be on the same elevation as it is on either side of the lot and be flat, not tilting some 20 degrees down the driveway. All the other identical townhouses of this kind on Mott and Dorothy have a safe sidewalk. Why not here? Also since the sidewalk is not slightly raised from the street any street flooding will drain right into their basement.
