The village sidewalk project, the outcome of the 2015 Town Meeting approval of article 30 which appropriated $85,000 for engineering, acquisition of rights of way or easements, legal costs, preparation of plans and specifications, and bidding to construct a sidewalk along Route 25, with a crosswalk located approximately halfway between the library and the Central School. This was to be consistent with Phase 1 (omitting segments S1A & S2A) of the Village Sidewalk Study dated Nov. 2013.
The BoS agreed at their work session last Thursday to bring the project to the CIPC for review and vetting. The BoS talked of this the past year when the preliminary report was presented by KV Partners in response to the 2015 Town Meeting vote. I argued that the BoS should own the project, as it is a critical piece of the village revitalization.
I'm glad the BoS decided to send this to the CIPC for a formal review. It's time to bring this well studied and planned project to voters next March and get this done.
The CIPC kick off meeting is scheduled for Wednesday May 3rd at 2pm at Town Hall.
