We Want Your Input!
Date of Event:
The Village held a community forum on February 25 as we continue to work on implementing our Comprehensive Plan. Dozens of residents asked questions, and offered suggestions and input on the proposed bike and pedestrian plan and design options for the proposed bridge over Route 59.
Key questions asked included, how is the project to be funded, what safety measures are proposed, will natural habitats be preserved, and when is it anticipated to be completed? The Village has secured grants for portions of the project already and intend to seek additional grant funding; there is no anticipated impact on taxpayers for this project. Safety measures are being considered such as lighting, access for emergency vehicles, and communications. The Village will conduct assessments of the natural habitats and limit any impacts construction of the path and bridge will have. Finally, the consultants noted that this is the first steps for this project; permits, grant applications, and engineering designs is anticipated to take up to two-years.
