Bolton TM Ponders Pedestrian-Friendly Article

Bolton (Mass.) Town Meeting members will be asked to vote on spending $10,000 to extend Main Street's sidewalk to a new senior housing project, allowing residents to safely walk to the center of town.

"We want to make the center more pedestrian-friendly so that people will walk if they can," Public Ways Safety Committee Chairwoman Cia Ochsenbein told the Bolton Common.

The idea is that in some places, the walkway won't be at the street, but set far back from traffic, similar to Stow's pathway. And while the location of the project may have started for the senior center, the idea is to allow all residents, not just seniors there, to do more walking downtown.
