Would like to see sidewalks at new Ingles
Is Ingles in Candler going to put in sidewalks? Hazards are created without sidewalks at the new Ingles on Sandhill Road.
Walkers need a safe way to cross the entrances and exits. This store is across the street from A-B Tech’s Enka campus and many students will cross the street to get snacks and food. There is already a sidewalk extending from Biltmore Lake that could be extended up the hill to Ingles.
Then, citizens could walk to the store for groceries. If people walked to the Ingles they would not use cars, causing no air pollution or noise pollution.
Not driving allows people to get more exercise. In conclusion, these sidewalks would be safer and healthier for our environment.
