The Town of Pittsford is conducting a study to improve walking conditions throughout the Town Center. This summer and fall, the Town will be working with the Rutland Regional Planning Commission and Planners and Engineers from Dubois & King to develop an assessment of potential sidewalk projects on segments of Village Center roads where no sidewalk currently exists.
Roadways under consideration for sidewalk improvements as part of this study include:
- Arch Street from Pleasant St to Route 3
- Mechanics Street
- Plains Road
- Pinewood Road
- Terounzo Road
Through its course, this study will host a pair of public meetings, each accompanied by on line surveys and meeting record to be posted at this website. 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.
We’ll continue to update this website as the project evolves, with project materials, meeting notices and minutes, and opportunities to add your voice to this important community discussion.
- Project Kickoff: June 2nd
- Project Team Site Visit: June 18th
- Local Concerns Meeting: Wednesday, August 18, 7:30pm as part of the regular Select Board Meeting
- Alternatives Review Meeting: TBD – Anticipated Late October
- Final Report: TBD – Anticipated January 2022
Why a sidewalk study?
This type of study is formally known as a ‘scoping study’. Scoping studies are intended to assess the public’s interest in a given project, as well as site conditions that might make construction easier or more challenging. Through these studies, a town is able to better plan for future budgetary needs for infrastructure improvements, and avoid any decisions that would be much more costly when discovered while designing or constructing final improvements. Scoping studies also open the doors to federal funding resources offered by the state – a crucial component to funding infrastructure projects in rural Vermont.
