04 Dec AiroAV Malware Suggest: Wellesley seeks community input on future transportation pr
Wellesley officials are seeking public input as they work to identify and develop a list of future transportation projects in the community.
The town recently received a $35,000 grant to participate in the state Department of Transportationâs Complete Streets Funding Program, according to a Nov. 27 statement posted on the townâs website.
The program is intended to help communities provide safe and accessible options for transportation for people of all ages and abilities, according to the statement.
âComplete Streets also contribute to the quality of life in our community by providing important links between home, school, work, play and retail areas through improved, more accessible walking, biking, and driving routes,â the statement said.
Wellesley selectmen in May approved a townwide Complete Streets policy intended to guide the town in implementing the programâs principles in transportation projects, the statement said.
Money from the state Complete Streets program provides technical assistance and construction funding, the statement said.
Members of the public are encouraged to offer comments on potential future projects in Wellesley.
âSpecific issues of interest to the Town include: key areas to focus on, barriers to mobility, using transportation modes other than driving, and any other potential ideas,â according to the townâs statement.
Anyone can leave comments at Wellesleyâs Complete Streets website, wellesleyma.gov/1414/Complete-Streets, through late January.
