Find Out What Bicycle and Improvements Have Been Proposed at The Brattleboro Walk/Bike Plan’s Second Public Meeting on November 28th!

The Town of Brattleboro thanks everyone who participated in the first public meeting for Brattleboro’s Walk/Bike Action Plan in late September. Based on your feedback, the gaps in the town’s walking and bicycling network, and in consideration of future town and VTrans projects, some recommendations have been developed.

Public Meeting for the Brattleboro Walk/Bike Action Plan – Thursday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m.

The Walk/Bike Action Plan has generated over 200 comments on the challenges and opportunities for better walking and biking in Brattleboro through an interactive map that can be accessed at www.brattleboro.org in the News section or at https://arcg.is/1Oe04q.

Please join us at a virtual public meeting on Thursday, September 22 from 6:30 to 8:00 pm for a discussion of the locations in Brattleboro most in need of attention from a pedestrian or bicyclist’s perspective – and some potential solutions. This will be the first of two public meetings for the Walk/Bike Action Plan. The goal is to share what we have heard so far and start determining how best to prioritize and fund the projects and maintenance required to keep bicyclists, pedestrians, and transit riders safe and comfortable as they get around town. Although virtual, this will be an interactive meeting that includes two-way discussion about potential targeted solutions through live polling and audience questions.

South Main Street Paving

Beginning Tuesday, September 6, All States Construction (a contractor of the town) will be milling and paving in the area along South Main Street.  This work is expected to take approximately three weeks to complete.
