The Dubuque City Council will again explore an old topic tonight, a plan for sidewalk installation along John F. Kennedy Road between Asbury Road and The Northwest Arterial.  A similar plan was rejected in 2018.  It was also discussed at length in 2007, but still homeowners along this busy stretch of road have not been required to install and maintain sidewalks.

What do you think?  Installing sidewalks is expensive, and nobody likes being hit with a demand, but homeowners throughout the city pay for sidewalks along their properties.  Many of us recently paid a big tab for the installation of permeable brick alleys behind our homes.  Is there a good reason sidewalks shouldn't be required here?
