Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,
This is on my street and pretty much every house on Pearson Road and Broomfield Road. I feel so bad for all the elderly and disabled people on Pearson Rd Somerville.
My father whom is in a wheelchair can’t even go down the sidewalk due to the fact the sidewalks are not up to city code which is 32 inches.
I already looked it up and the terrible overgrowth that plagues the city…
My father, a longtime resident of Somerville for over 53 years ..
Pays his taxes and is confined to a short distance on the sidewalk.
Where is the tax payers money going to? It’s definitely not to better the city sidewalks.
How can a disabled person in a wheelchair get by this mess? It’s not even two feet wide and a hump. Just look at the overgrowth …
