UPDATE: SEPTEMBER 2019
We are moving forward with plans for the intersection of Webster Steet and Snow Road. The traffic and pedestrian study that the Chamber funded produced three possible solutions for that intersection. The larger Webster Walkability group including police, DPW, library, and a few residents and local business owners met and agreed a stoplight is the most appropriate solution to pursue (versus stop signs or a roundabout). The Chamber WW committee is cooperating with the selectmen and DPW to position us for possible state funding for this stoplight, which is estimated at $250,000 or more. Plans are being drawn up for the light, and we are looking to hold a public forum in the coming months to discuss with a wider audience. Separately, the speed bumps on Library Plaza Road look to be very effective! Looking ahead, we will be having discussion about writing an article for spring Town Meeting regarding the paving and re-striping of the playground parking lot, coupled with a sidewalk stretched from the playground to a new crosswalk by the new wing of the library.
