Sidewalk demonstration installation this weekend: we need your feedback!
In 2019, following a series of community meetings facilitated by the VT Council on Rural Development, Walkability and Bikeability was identified as a top priority for Greensboro. As a result, the Greater Greensboro Report and Action Plan was drafted, the Walk/Bike task force was formed, and collaborative efforts began with area stakeholders.
On May 27, the Walk/Bike Taskforce and Local Motion, Vermont’s statewide advocate for active transportation and safe streets, will install a demonstration project in Greensboro’s busy town center that will allow people in town to see what crosswalks and parking areas would feel like if proposed changes were to be made. Through the Memorial Day weekend, crosswalks and parking areas will be temporarily modified in the interest of enhancing safety, visibility and efficiency for both pedestrians and drivers.
So what can you do to help? We need you to come check it out and give your feedback on your experience with the interactive sidewalk demonstration. Your opinion is key in designing improvements at this key intersection. When you head to Willeys, the Millers Thumb, or any of the locations “downtown,” try out the proposal for yourself, and provide your feedback. A form is available at this link: https://forms.gle/
