Clean Up Week

 In #zerobarriers, Why is this still a thing Wednesday
Paula standing on a sidewalk under a tree and a branch is hanging down in front of her face.

When trimming branches make sure that they are not impeding on circulation paths.

With cleanup week upon us it is a good reminder to make sure that we are checking that sidewalks are clear and free of obstructions like the one above.  When someone relies on a cane due to a vision impairment, low hanging branches can present an unexpected hazard.  A cane is only able to detect items that are less than 28 inches off the ground..  If the branch is high enough for someone to walk under it without running into it, this would not be a potential hazard.  Also, when putting your trash in the boulevard, make sure that it is not sticking out over the sidewalk.
