ADA - Persistence has paid off for a group of Ada residents who have recently been engaged in a battle of wills with the Ada Village Council. Residents of Christopher Circle, Brandi Place, Valerie Drive, and Jocelyn Drive can breathe a sigh of relief that their beloved wooded neighborhoods and cul-de-sac streets won't be altered to include sidewalks.

Council President Jimmy Wilson made a motion to "not perform" the proposed addition of sidewalks in the reconstruction plans of Ada's concrete streets neighborhoods. The motion was passed with a five to one vote.
