Town-wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan
Lexington's Town-wide Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan will prioritize future improvements to our streets, sidewalks, and shared use paths to provide meaningful connections that gets people where they want to go. The Plan will be an important tool as the Town makes future mobility investments. Plan development is underway.
What is happening, and how can I participate?
VHB, the Town's consultant, will be presenting the draft Plan to the Select Board on November 27, 2023. At that meeting, we expect the Select Board to discuss the project and then we plan to come back to the Select Board at a later date for the Board to vote to accept the Plan. That final date has not been scheduled. The draft plan, prioritized list and appendices are available for review. Please e-mail comments to Sheila Page at email@example.com
The draft plan was presented to the public on November 1, 2023 for the third and final public meeting. The slides from the meeting are here and feature the top 10 improvements for each category - sidewalks, bicycle accommodations, trails/side paths and intersections. The Plan includes the full prioritized list, draft bicycle plan and a draft pedestrian plan.
On June 9, we held the second of three public meetings to gather feedback on initial draft recommendations. The presentation from the June 9 meeting explains the progress thus far.
Draft recommendations for both pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure were reviewed. Even though some of the infrastructure is the same for both bicycle and pedestrians they are separated in to two maps for ease of reading.
As a welcome activity, participants were asked to choose their top two corridors each for pedestrians and bicycles they would like to see improved.
Participants were also asked to consider trade-offs when creating bicycle and pedestrian improvements.
If you have comments, whether you attended the meeting or not, we want to know what you think: Please email Sheila Page at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Public Forum #1 on April 4 was a great success. Over 50 people attended. Groups worked diligently to map out pedestrian and bicycle needs.
