Provision of pedestrian access should be a condition of project approval. As it is now, there is no safe path for pedestrians from the many homes (90 plus) a few hundred feet to the north of the project along West Bayshore Road. The project with its nifty new supermarket and community park will trigger an increase in pedestrian traffic, which increase is an impact of the project but which was not studied in the EIR. The EIR should not be certified unless the city stipulates to the impact and its mitigation by provision of a path.
Again, safe pedestrian access should be a condition of project approval.
