Project Overview 

A key project in the Downtown 2020 Work Plan is to improve Access and Variety in the Downtown. Our project goal is to design improvements for downtown pedestrian alleyways that will address safety concerns, provide opportunities for place-making and expand wayfinding accommodations.  The project will result in a schematic design and cost estimates for improvements to two alleyways “Post Office Alley” and “Varsity Alley.”

Current Status

The Town is working with local landscape architecture firm Swanson & Associates to develop detailed drawings of the current alleyways to provide a general contractor when construction begins.

Public Meetings

Public input meetings were held in the fall of 2016 and winter 2017. Residents were invited to provide feedback on different design ideas. This input is being incorporated into the design drawings.
