Wellington’s new sidewalks are heavily utilized said elementary principals

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Wellington City Council member John Brand presented a photo on his computer tablet at Tuesday’s meeting of a rack filled with bicycles. That in itself would not make for an earth shattering picture.But it came with a note from an e-mail from Eisenhower Elementary Principal Kelly Adams that read:“I just wanted to share a picture with everyone. This is Eisenhower’s bike rack on August 21.In my seven years here at Ike, I have never seen this many bikes in the rack on one day. After visiting with the students and staff, I believe much of the credit to the increase goes towards the addition of the new sidewalks around our school… Many thanks.“Adams is not the only one one. Washington Elementary Principal Ann Shinliver is also reporting an increase in kids walking and biking to school.Lots of bicycles at Eisenhower Elementary these days.“It is great,” Shinliver said. “It has changed the kind of traffic around Washington school. Now we are in need of getting a crosswalk.”New sidewalks were built after the city of Wellington procured a $250,000 Federal Safe Routes to School grant, that allowed the city to lay down a couple of miles of new sidewalks around or near three of the four elementary schools. The project was completed last week.Unfortunately, Wellington did not get all the sidewalks constructed it had hoped for. There were plans for sidewalks around Lincoln Elementary, southwest of the U.S. Post Office.“But we ran out of money,” said Jamie Cornejo, Wellington City Engineer Aide. “We were also wanting to construct a sidewalk between 20th and 21st Street north of Washington Elementary but was unable to do so.”New sidewalks were built on Plum Street and 16th Street around Eisenhower Elementary in west Wellington. Also sidewalks were constructed on C Street from 15th to 20th around Washington. Another sidewalk runs on 9th Street from Cherry to Woodlawn for students living west of Kennedy Elementary.It’s been a hectic summer for Cornejo, who was in charge of being the liaison between the construction company Pavers, Inc. of Salina and the property owners for which all the sidewalks were constructed. Not everyone was happy (see story here).“In hindsight I wished we would have had at least one more meeting with the property owners,” Cornejo said. “We had a few last minute changes that comes with any project. Once the property owners understood what we were doing, they were much happier.”Also, there were several weather delays during a wet summer.For years, Wellington has been sidewalk challenged, but there was no money available to build them until a federal grant was discovered by former Wellington City Engineer Larry Mangan. The plan called for new sidewalks around or near the elementary schools. City officials were hoping to redo sidewalks around Lincoln, but the money was spent before doing so.“It was a decision of the lesser of two evils,” Cornejo said. “We knew Eisenhower was in dire need of sidewalks more than any other school. So they got first priority.”The city can apply for another grant in the future, but Cornejo said it will likely be three years before the feds will consider Wellington again.Cornejo said aside from sidewalks around Lincoln, there is a need for a sidewalk to stretch down 16th Street between Eisenhower and Sumner Mental Health Center.There is currently a new sidewalk being built between Woodlawn Ave. and Boundary Street on U.S. 160 on the east side of town – connecting Penny’s Diner to McDonald’s Restaurant. That is being funded through a Kansas Department of Transportation grant. Close Forgot password? Please put in your email: Send me my password!
