Suburban transportation and planning agencies have historically given priority to moving people along roadways by passenger vehicles, rather than by public transportation or pedestrian walks and bikeways. Over the past few years, there has been a greater consideration for all modes of transportation, including pedestrians using sidewalks. In 2016, the Town created its first Master Sidewalk Plan based on the Town’s Plan of Conservation and Development. One goal was to provide links to our schools, public buildings, parks, places of worship, business districts, and public transportation facilities. As can be seen on the updated 2023 Master Sidewalk Plan, the majority of these areas either have or are getting sidewalks in the near future. Moving forward, the Town will prioritize filling the gaps on the major arterial and collector roads, linking these important places. Should you have further questions, please feel free to contact a member of the Engineering Department staff.
