DENVER, CO - FEBRUARY 18: Sam Powell and her children, Ford, 5, and Chloe, 7, walk between sections of sidewalk and non-sidewalk walkways during their daily trek to Cory Elementary School on Thursday, February 18, 2016. Powell says that the inconsistency of sidewalks in the neighborhood has she and her children crossing the street at non-crosswalk intersections and going through the alleyway behind their home just to make a the roughly three-block trip each day. Denver leaves both responsibility and liability to adjacent property owners for maintaining and building sidewalks, which has many neighborhoods lacking consistent walkways.
