Sidewalk Committee

The Sidewalk Committee will advise the Board of Selectmen on sidewalk policies. The Committee seeks broad citizen input to support and encourage implementation of the recommendations of the Transportation Element of the Comprehensive Plan for increasing pedestrian activity and reducing traffic. The Committee will:

  • consider the adequacy of the town wide sidewalk network to safely address the Town's recreation and transportation needs;
  • recommend policy for sidewalk construction and maintenance, including financing and a prioritization strategy;
  • work with the school PTAs and School Department to implement and sustain a Safe Routes to School program; and
  • Sustain community interest in walking

Members should have enthusiasm for good health, safety and sound planning. The Committee seeks nominations for membership from school PTA organizations.

Members: 7
Appointed By: Board of Selectmen
Term: 3 years


...Do you have an idea for how to fund sidewalk maintenance?

...Would you be prepared to shovel the part of the sidewalk that fronts your property or would you prefer that the Town do it at a higher cost to you?

Please send email to the Sidewalk Committee with your ideas, questions, complaints, and views.
