Come on, folks, clear your sidewalks

I live on the 100 N. Kenilworth block. Sunday afternoon I was walking to the 19th Century Club on the 900 block of Ontario. I had to walk in the street because of sidewalks still covered with ice and snow. 

So on my way home I decided to walk to Lake Street and walk east to Kenilworth thinking all sidewalks would be shoveled. Well, the entire sidewalk alongside Grace Episcopal Church had never been shoveled!

Seems as though their parking area on the north side of Lake Street had been cleared. I had to slowly navigate through it.

This lack of consideration for citizens of Oak Park — a vibrant, walking community — is unacceptable.
