Department of Public Works Seeks Public Input on Brattleboro Sidewalk Project

The Town is planning to install new sidewalks on the east side of main Street, starting at the Gilbert Memorial Bridge and continuing north to Walnut Street. Some sections of this sidewalk were recently replaced as part of a VTrans project.

The Downtown Sidewalk Project will replace the sections that have not yet been upgraded. The project is intended to improve safety for pedestrians and create a more attractive Main Street.

We invite you as a resident of Brattleboro, property owner, or business owner along the Downtown Sidewalk Project route to attend a public meeting on April 25, 2013 at 6:00 pm in the Selectboard Meeting Room at the Municipal Center located at 230 Main Street.

At this meeting we will provide an update on the project status. In addition, conceptual plans for this project have been developed and will be presented at the meeting along with landscaping and streetscaping design alternatives. We will ask for public input on conceptual plans and alternatives. We hope to see you all there!

  • Nice

    Again I’m reminded that we have a great DPW.

    It’s especially nice to see an opportunity for public input just prior to a project being undertaken (as opposed to, say, 10 years in advance of some state projects.)

    The work will be a bit disruptive to downtown, but we’ll have new sidewalks (blessed with public input) to show for it when the work is done.

    Hopefully a similar project to help the ADA committee with the sidewalks near the library and Municipal Center will be able to be scheduled shortly thereafter.
