Complete Streets - Go before the Board of Selectmen - April 16th

On Tuesday, April 16th at 6:30pm the modifications and comments provided at the March 26th Complete Streets workshop will be presented to the Board of Selectmen. Please review the March 26th meeting notes and the Complete Streets Revised Presentation 2019-03-26 below. All other project process documents and reports are also available in the links below. 

Complete Streets Workshop - March 26th!

Join a group of stakeholders - property owners, Bike and Pedestrian Committee members and Downtown Improvement Projects Committee members - to further develop options that meet a series of objectives, some of the which compete with one another. For example, on-street parking within an intersection conflicts with safe passage of pedestrians and vehicles.  View notes from the meeting here.

How the Complete Streets Program Works

Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work.

  • With the Complete Streets Prioritization Plan (CSPP) accepted by Mass Department of Transportation (MassDOT), the Town is eligible to request construction funding for identified CSPP projects.
  • The Town can request up to $400,000 for projects to be completed in 2018 through a competitive grant application due by October 1, 2017.
  • The Board of Selectmen chose nine projects to forward for funding requests at its meeting on Monday, September 25, 2017. Most projects focus on pedestrian crossings and improved crosswalks, ramps and sidewalks to increase safety and accessibility. 
  • The Town will be notified by December 2, 2017 of projects approved for funding by the Commonwealth.
  • Any projects funded by MassDOT must be completed by December 31, 2018.
