Sidewalk Requests

Requesting the construction of a new sidewalk is a lengthy process that typically takes several years and requires input from numerous Town boards and committees. Depending on the eventual scale and scope of a request, it may also involve securing funding from Town Meeting. The sidewalk request process provides an outline of the steps that should be followed when a resident, or group of residents, are interested in the creation of a new sidewalk. Information is posted on this page.

For additional information please email Sheila Page, Assistant Planning Director.

      Please note: At this time, sidewalk is being considered on one side only. The decision on which side of the street the sidewalk is located is based on a study of potential impacts conducted during the design process. This presentation is in concept only showing how a sidewalk could fit. Having the sidewalk alternate sides of the street will be reviewed, however roadway crossings are seen as detrimental to the overall project.
