The Town of Watertown will host a meeting about Complete Streets, and discuss where the concept should be implemented in town.
Complete Streets helps make the streets more walkable, bikeable and more public transit friendly, according to the announcement from the Town.
On the meeting agenda:
• What are Complete Streets?
• Where should Complete Streets projects be implemented in Watertown?
• Next Steps in the Prioritization Plan Process
The Town’s Complete Streets Prioritization Plan meeting will be on Dec. 14 at 6:30 p.m., in the Town Council Chambers in Town Hall, 149 Main St., Watertown.
The Town is working with Alta Planning to assist with development of the plan, which will identify opportunities to implement additional Complete Streets practices in Town, according to an announcement from the Department of Community Development and Planning.
The goal of the meeting is to provide a primer on Complete Streets and obtain input from stakeholders about potential Complete Streets projects. The consultant will then review and vet the potential projects and create a prioritization plan. An additional meeting will be held to review the prioritization.
Completing the plan is a prerequisite for seeking construction funding under the MassDOT Complete Streets program.
