Vik your influential person in planning misled you on sidewalks and the ADA. centerpoint obtains an easement to place poles. in the instance, METRO chose to obtain the easement to widen the corridor. at this point, METRO is responsible for moving the power poles out of the old easement. since they didn't have enough money the poles remained. to blame centerpoint is wrong. the city of Houston residents are not required to build and maintain sidewalks and curbs. there are many areas that don't have them currently. if they want them, they can petition the city to build them and the neighborhood can pay for them outright OR they could get lucky with a capital improvements shot of funding. if they have sidewalks currently then yes they want citizens to maintain them.
