Sidewalk projects await decision on brick pavers - Gazette

A County Council proposal to eliminate the use of brick pavers on right of way sidewalks would have a big impact on downtown Wheaton if passed, said officials with the Mid-County Regional Services Center.

Brick pavers are the most-used streetscaping material in Wheaton's Urban District and in other parts of the county, said Joe Callaway, the chief of operations for the urban district. But some oppose the use of the pavers because they can pose hazards to pedestrians, especially the handicapped, if they're poorly installed.

Cities, Building and even houses are now consist of brick pavers. It seems that many of us want to install pavers but sadly there is a proposal to eliminate the used of these pavers because for the safety reasons.
