Eleven speakers weighed in at Tuesday's City Council meeting on a proposal for pedestrian improvements in Temple Hills.
City staff culled that proposal, along with some others, from the Complete Streets Task Force's recommendations.
The council ultimately approved a $295,000 allocation for six proposed Complete Streets projects. Details for the pedestrian improvements, whose suggested funding is $100,000, were not revealed.
"I know a lot of people in that area, and some of them are completely entrenched in that, 'There will not be any pathway next to my house, and I will take it to court, and I don't care what it costs,'" said former Environmental Chairman Chris Prelitz. "I can't see pulling [$100,000] form the Complete Streets budget because there is a high likelihood of this not being successfully completed in our lifetimes."
