Plymouth Plan Commission President Sounds Off on Sidewalks

The Plymouth Plan Commission is urging the Plymouth City Council to enact an ordinance for residents and business owners to clear sidewalks if there isn’t already a law in place.

Plan Commission President Doug Feece commented in last week’s meeting said the city had trouble clearing the sidewalks on the Michigan Street bridge as a lot of snow fell last week. He said he saw someone walking down Michigan Street in the road on crutches because the sidewalks were snow covered.

Feece said when new businesses or houses come into the city he hopes that sidewalks are included in plans for the property. He stated that he doesn’t want to see any casualties because sidewalks are not available to residents who need to walk to their destination.

The plan commission members did not act on his recommendations, but they will be discussed in future meetings.
