I would like to see the portion of the abandonded school walkway reopened, that goes from Robinhood and leads to PV and the high school. Currently you have to enter the pathway at Robinhood. If you wanted to drive to the entrance, there is no place to park. Reopening the abandonded portion and extending new portions through the patches of woods would create a walkable neighborhood, it would connect people and create that sense of community. I always thought how nice it would be if there were swing sets, or even a picnic pavilion in the woods. With the 'new' road linking Crosswinds to Cedar Hills one can now walk to Donaldson's Crossroads. It made our neighborhood 'walkable' which is something we always admired about communities like Mt. Lebanon but without the high taxes and congestion. I wish the township would also look into upgrading the road that now snakes through the rented apartments. There are a lot of children playing in the streets there, and I worry one day some one will get hurt. I also think allowable housing should be more 'mixed' where apartments and townhomes and single family homes are mixed together. I envision Grandma could live in her affordable apartment down the street from the parents in the single family home. Think of the South Fayette community of Lakemont Farms, or even Hunting Ridge. Smaller lots & mixed housing creates this kind of neighborhood Wednesday night was open house at McMurray-bad timing on the part of the township.

Thanks so much for your input! Sounds like walkability is something many residents would like to see improved.
