BRATTLEBORO -- The public is invited to attend a public meeting on the Downtown Sidewalk Project on April 25, starting at 6 p.m., in the Selectboard Meeting Room of the Municipal Center.

The town is planning on installing new sidewalks on the east side of Main Street, starting at the Gilbert Memorial Bridge over the Whetstone Brook and continuing north to Walnut Street. While some sections of the sidewalk were previously replaced as part of a Vermont Department of Transportation project, this town project will replace the sections the state did not upgrade.

The sidewalk project is intended to improve safety for pedestrians and create a more attractive Main Street.

At the April 25 meeting, town officials will present conceptual plans for the project, which will include landscaping and streetscaping alternatives. Public input will be accepted.
