What are the officials in the village of South Glens Falls thinking? I am writing regarding the article in Friday's Post-Star titled "Sidewalk dispute spills over." Why would the village officials want Common Roots to pay for and install a sidewalk on their side of the tiny Marion Avenue that ends in a dead end public parking lot? There have been businesses come and go in the beautiful building that Common Roots has constructed and never a sidewalk mentioned. If the village feels the need for a sidewalk, why can't the village put a sidewalk in on the opposite side of this tiny stretch of Marion Avenue? Common Roots needs their area for loading and unloading products. The Webers are such nice neighbors in the village and have created a pleasant area that is kept immaculate and is so welcoming to many.
Please, village of South Glens Falls officials, leave Common Roots alone and let them expand their neighborly and welcoming business. Common Roots is a true asset to the village and we want to keep them here. Please, village of South Glens Falls officials, if you truly feel the need, put your sidewalk on the opposite side of the street.
