Walk Audit Report
The Bike and Pedestrian Committee working with Cape Ann Mass in Motion and Walk Boston hosted a walking audit on June 3rd that focused on roads around the schools. The Town Administrator, Police Chief, DPW Director, Town Planner, School Administrators and Staff took part viewing and assessing the roads and sidewalks and providing information about Town and School policies, operations and initiatives. The Report outlines the purpose and route of the audit and makes a series of recommendations for improving safety, accessibility and comfort.
The Town’s recently adopted Master Plan recommends an annual walking audit in the various neighborhoods and areas of town with the aim of improving streets and sidewalks throughout Town over time. If you have an idea of a neighborhood or area that you would like to be audited, please reach out to a member of the Bike and Pedestrian Committee.
