    This intersection needs a signaled pedestrian crossing. Many people need to cross here and just have to do it in the very unsafe current conditions. We need to prioritize pedestrians and their safety.

    The center stripe on 9th north of Thatcher is badly faded and hard to see. Please refresh this stripe to separate north/south traffic

    We need a sidewalk on N Haines St between Shenandoah Drive and Franklin. It is unsafe to walk up or down the hill because of almost nonexistent shoulders.

    DANGER: there is a great bike/walk path that connects Front St to the greenbelt. but the access to it is terrible~a biker heading south on 11th has to swerve onto the sidewalk, avoid the heavy pedestrian traffic and then get on the bike/walk path. Please fix this access point for safety for all.

    Due to lack of feeder street parking from Shirley to Hill Road and wells near road it is unfeasible to rework the street. It functions as a rural road that requires everyone to be accountable to themselves and other users. It is also important to mention that the majority of the Collister homeowners are against altering the roadway as they have expressed in the past when this issue came up. Due to the dead end nature of Collister on both ends this would be an ideal road to have the shared bike-car lane that is in place on 13th and Northview. We have many cyclist access either Polecat, Hill Road or the greenbelt via Collister in both directions. Collister would be a good example of less car traffic and creating a specific north-south cycling route. This could be implemented with a simple designation change without the huge expense of changing the street structure. The impact to the home owners would be negligible. The two arterials on either side, Pierce Park and 36th can still accommodate the normal flow of traffic.

    The Greenbelt on "fantasy island" has been in disrepair for years and deters many cyclist from using the greenbelt. It is also a safety concern for walkers and joggers with the raised bumps that are everywhere on this section of the Greenbelt. This section of the Greenbelt is a major commuter route for those of us that work in West Boise, and a surface improvement is badly needed here.

    Sidewalks are needed along both sides of Lemp. Please review the whole of Lemp St from Lowell school at 28th street to Harrison blvd. There are lots of missing sections. If side walks are installed they may need to be taken out of the street width rather than damage the existing trees.

    Don't remove the trees along Ridenbaugh. But sidewalks are needed on the North side of Ridenbaugh from 24-22nd street.

    Alternative to dead-end southbound 15th. Just recently noticed the green rectangle bike sign prior to Resseguie St. which suggests bikes take Ressiguie St one block to 16th which continues with bike lane south. Based on likes, it seems others may not be aware, and maybe warrants some promotion of the green signs. (tried to comment, but just liked; others may have liked with trying to comment)

    Dangerous section -- Northbound has a nice bike lane over Glenwood bridge to Riverside Dr. After intersection for a hundred feet or so exists only a gutter lane until it gradually widens back into a bike lane. Often if you are in the bike lane and are stopped at the Riverside light, you and the cars must neck down to one lane as you proceed through.

    This intersection crossing washington going north is very dangerous for walkers. I personally have almost been hit twice. Cars turning left onto 13th often rush in front of pedestrians in order to beat traffic. This intersection if very busy with people coming from YMCA and Boise High.

    Lots of kids walk to Washington. Despite the light in the middle of the intersection, 90% of the kids crossing cross at the corners. Cars rarely stop and often are going over 20 mph. I have witnessed crossing guards nearly getting hit while leaving the intersection. Cars often park to drop off kids in front of the school, blocking bike riders and endangering all. Attention needs to be given to crossings around this school because of the number of kids walking and crossing 15th to get to school.

    Vast majority of *elementary school* kids going to Washington walk, bike or skate but there are multiple conflicts with cars on 15th st especially. please consider better markings and a pedestrian hybrid beacon on 15th. coordinate w school to encourage crossings at the light. many parents are dropping off in bike lane on 15th endangering bikers/pedestrians. this is a tragic accident(s) waiting to happen.

    Excessive speed in this area is a serious problem. There is a sidewalk, but a curve just above the country club allows cars to round the curve at high speeds without seeing walkers until they are around the curve. I don't feel safe walking here even though there is a sidewalk. Find ways to encourage traveling the speed limit here.

    This area is congested during school drop-off and pick up times. Simple, inexpensive modifications to the school parking lot/grassy area/parking on street could eliminate some of the congestion. There is no bussing in this area. Encourage walking by making walking routes safer on lower Braemere.

    West Braemere is subject to heavy traffic cutting through from the bigger Collector streets on either side of it. It is a major walking route to school. Encouraging traffic back onto the better designed Collector streets nearby is the first answer, but a sidewalk is also needed, at a minimum on the stretch from Ranch Rd to Curling.

    This stretch of upper Curling is a major walking route into Highlands school. It is steep and curvy and needs a sidewalk!

    The decorative medians push cars into the bike lanes. 15th street was safer before they decided to place them there. I don't see their benefit but I have to be extra careful when I pass them on my bike, as cars get pushed into my lane. Please remove them and add speed bumps between the intersections.

    NE corner house has shrubs that make it difficult to see onto Hill rd while pulling out from 19th st. Bikes and pedestrians going west on the south side of Hill are hidden.

    Sidewalk is only on the north side of the street here. There is no bike lane. There are also no crosswalks, and as this is a hill, many people speed on their way down (in spite of the speed bumps). This area gets a lot of foot and bicycle traffic, and there needs to be accommodation for that.

    I work near here at the Department of Labor. Every day, I see many cyclists crossing Front and Myrtle from the Zoo/Julia Davis/Greenbelt area. It looks like a MAJOR bike route. I think there should be sharrows or at least bike lanes here. It is a great natural connector from the Greenbelt and Boise State to Military Reserve, St. Lukes, Downtown, North End, etc. and it would be awesome to see that connectivity adressed
