    Concern with bicycle safety to/from overland/vinnel from central bench. Current routes are dangerous or tortuous.

    The Overland Road end of Penninger Drive would benefit from the installation of sidewalks. Safety is the main concern, particularly on the curve in the road. Penninger is a narrow road and drivers often speed through the curve without staying in the appropriate lane. I have witnessed many near collisions with vehicles swerving to avoid hitting each other. Many people in the neighborhood walk to businesses on Overland. I am concerned about what could happen if a walker is on the curve at the same time as one of those near collisions.

    This needs added bike lanes. Very narrow and hazardous.

    Sidewalks and bike lanes need to connect Lake Hazel to the future Murgoitio Park. The same on Cole.

    Lake Hazel needs bike paths it's entire length. Separated bike paths would be best.

    I would like to see some sort of bike path/pedestrian connectivity between the community center area at Lake Hazel/Five Mile and Eagle/Amity. Once the new Y opens having a non motorized route between these two community centers would be very beneficial.

    When Lake Hazel was widened from Maple Grove to 5 mile the bike lane was narrow in places which is a danger to bikers especially kids riding to school. The othEr roads in the area are dangerous to bke on due to the lack of shoulders especially south Cole and Pleasant Valley road. thre are many gaps in sidewalks and bike trails between new subdivisions and older homes that need to be widened.

    There should be more sidewalks outside of what developments put up along Locust Grove from Overland to Amity because lots of kids from the high school traffic that space.

    Mitchell is a very busy road where very few people follow the speed limits. a side walk or room for a biking path would be helpful as there is a lot of bike traffic and walkers/runners on this road.

    Unfortunately Burnett Dr. has become a cut off road for traffic. It is a narrow road without side walks. last time a traffic study was conducted one end of the road was closed therefore an inaccurate study was completed. There has been multiple near collisions at the corner of Quercis and Burnett due to no stop signs installed when new street built. A 3 way stop to slow down traffic and new 20 MPH speed limit signs would be helpful.

    Sidewalks should always be around grocery stores! Also, around schools! Sidewalk is needed from the intersection of Lake Hazel and Five Mile south on Five Mile past Christine Donnell School of The Arts out towards the desert. Many new homes are being built right now along the west side Five Mile on 36 acres. I see the developer is putting in just a short section of sidewalk. Developers should have to provide all the sidewalk along their development when it is along any street.

    Any road that is in project planning for widening or improvements in this area of town, South of Franklin, North of Lake Hazel, East of Meridian Road and West of Federal Way-should include planning for bike lanes and pedestrian use.
    Places that are of particular concern to me include:
    Overland Road: Bypass routes do not allow for access to businesses without getting onto Overland at some point.
    Victory Road: Has very nice bike lanes from Orchard to Cole, but going west, bike lanes are narrow and traffic lanes narrow also. Some parts of Victory Road west of Five Mile have only a few inches of a bike path, which is often broken down. One has to ride in the gravel, which is unsafe, especially in the morning or evenings in the winter months. Very unsafe!!
    Amity Road: Ditto, gravel is unsafe, and traffic is fast.
    Again, as Ada County looks to improve roads to handle increased traffic, please plan for safe bike lanes and sidewalks. It is such a small addition to a large project, but will make a huge difference, and save costs compared to adding these features at a future time.
    Added benefits of reduced auto trips, reduced air pollution, and a healthier population won't show on the balance sheet, but will make the Boise area more bike-able.
    I intend to bike more and more, so I appreciate the opportunity to give input. I anticipate a brighter, safer biking future.

    Before we add sidewalks and bike paths, we need Maple Grove to be widened to accomodate residents traveling back and forth to work. It's a nightmare now and with all the apt.s going in at Lake Hazel & Maple Grove it will be ridiculous. Please widen before adding sidewalks and bike paths.

    We live at 3040 S Summerset way and we walk or bike to the library and it is a very busy road on Victory. Bike lanes and especially a side walk would be so helpful for the community to get to the library or to get to other places in the area.

    there are no side walks on the west side of Valley.

    if you live in the sub division just south of LHMS, you have to walk south to W LH road, cross the street east and then walk north on the East side of valley to get to the middle schools.

    Also the baseball fields get along of extra parking and jay walking (E to west) to get to the field. this area is un safe

    There needs to be a continuous sidewalk from Five Mile to Cloverdale. We live off Hiawatha, disappointing that we can’t walk to our own nearby library without falling into bushes/weeds or the road.

    Agree with other comments that something needs to be done with Victory between Cloverdale and 5 mile. A sidewalk would be nice, or at the very least expand out some rough pavement and add curbing like what has been done on segments of Maple Grove.

    Since this part of Victory (and the segment from Maple Grove to 5 Mile for that matter) is not slatted to be widened before 2022 and possibly as late as 2035 (according to Master Plan, though I may have misinterpreted) anything to expand the current 'shoulder' would make it safer for drivers and bikers and likely increase its use.

    At the very least would it be possible to add a few inches to the shoulder this summer when repainting the lines after chip sealing?

    For when Maple Grove gets widened, it would be great if you make the bike lane a protected bike lane. It might be a false sense of security but I sure do like riding on the inside of the curbing that was added several years ago (when pedestrian traffic allows). And as a driver the 'hard' border makes passing bikes and pedestrians more comfortable.

    A method for crossing I-84 at Eagle for pedestrians needs to be created. Currently you have to compete with the west bound on-ramp traffic and this is the only route from the Meridian pathway system running along 5-Mile Creek to the St. Luke's medical center and the Meridian Village area.

    Sidewalks from Chapin Ave to Lake Hazel are greatly needed. A safe place for kids/families to walk down to the stores. The pickup lane of parents at this school crowd the bike lane, and we routinely see kids walking/biking in the middle of the street.
