LWVA Supports West Bay Road Pedestrian Improvements

The League of Women Voters of Amherst is urging the Department of Public Works to include the West Bay Road Pedestrian Improvements in the FY 2018 budget so that work can begin in 2017. In a letter to the Department, the League noted that the proposal has several components, and urged that "the overall project be planned together, as a coherent unit, with emphasis on pedestrian safety" and that "local residents...be involved in the planning process.

The attached Article 37 passed by the Spring 2016 Town Meeting includes a map showing existing and proposed trails as well as two new pedestrian crossings, one near Applewood and one near Atkins Market.
