Pathways Projects 2022

 

 

 

 Hey ALMONTE! Want to improve your street-to-street pathways? 

 

 

 

  If you live in the Almonte area and have an interest in helping improve the various street-to-street steps, lanes and paths in your neighborhoods please drop me a DM with your name and email address. I am going to be working to help develop a local Almonte initiative to mimic Mill Valley’s Friends of the Steps, Lanes and Paths volunteer group and need to understand if there are enough local Almonte residents who might want to support such an effort.

 

 

 

Also, if you know of existing pathways that are in need of TLC please DM me with the location of those. 

 

 

 

 Goals:

 

 

 

 1) Improve off-road pedestrian routes throughout Almonte

 

 

 

 2) Create better emergency egress routes for Almonte residents  

 

 

 

 3) Build Almonte community engagement between local residents via FUN local volunteering  

 

 

 

 Please share this with others who might not be on  

 

 

 

 Thanks, Hugh

Update-March and April: 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

In March 2022 Mill Valley Steps, Lanes, and Paths (MV SLP) Committee’s project was a big one, they cleared and cleaned a path behind Tam High. In April they tackled another project in Almonte that was on the Cardinal/Crimson Steps located between 150 Stanford Avenue and 131 Harvard Avenue. These volunteer parties have highlighted how much work needs to be done in the Almonte District.  

 

 

 

The best part is that MV SLP is willing to help us out! Almonte residents can join MV SLP to create a sister organization in our district. We can build on the experience gained within the Mill Valley city limits. The MV SLP committee is ready and willing to help kickstart our effort.  

 

 

 

Please consider joining in to make our neighborhood safer and more accessible. Contact mvslpfriends@gmail.com or our Almonte resident liason, Lisa at lisadaniellewojcik@gmail.com  

 

 

 

The Almonte District Improvement Club wishes to thank MV SLP for their tremendous work effort in making these essential paths easily accessible for Almonte neighbors.

 Update-May from Hugh Kuhn:

 

Hey Almonte! Look what the Tam HS Football Team has done for you!  

 

This morning, [Saturday May 7, 2022] about 30 Tam student athletes got a workout cleaning up a totally overgrown Accessway that runs from Cleveland at the top down to the intersection of Rosemont/Julia/Perry’s. This was a HUGE effort and major kudos to Coach LemMon and his players for donating a Saturday morning to the community! Great job gents.

 

 

 

If you live in Almonte and care about the public Accessways I’ve love to add you to a list of fellow neighbors who might help me work to protect them from encroachment, improve them and maintain the.

 

Just drop me an email with your contact info (name and email…)  to:  hughkuhn @ mac.com

The work is rescheduled to be cleared by CCC in the Fall 2020  according to CCC’s Frank Arzarga.
