The Town of Pittsford has received a grant to conduct a study to improve walking conditions throughout the Town Center.

Why a Sidewalk Study?

This sidewalk study, or “scoping study,” gauges public interest in a project while providing detail and design alternatives that help towns budget for improvements and approach grant applications. They reveal site conditions that might make any construction easier, or more challenging. Through these studies, a town is better able to budget for community improvements, and make important decisions well before any more costly design and construction work.

Scoping studies also open the door to funding opportunities offered by the state, which provides crucial support for many public projects such as safe sidewalks in Pittsford. Your voice is crucial in understanding where the Town should and should not allocate resources to improve walking conditions to, and adjacent to, the Village Center.
