A public hearing will be held in Guilford on Monday, November 4 to discuss the possibility of a 2,500-foot extension of sidewalk on State Street to the intersection with LIttle Meadow Road.
According to Shore Publishing, Guilford resident Jennifer Mullett gathered 49 signatures for a petition to add the sidewalks. She is quoted in the publication stating: "There are a lot of pedestrians and kids and bicyclists that use this stretch of road and to have sidewalks extended to this area would make it safer for everyone, including the drivers."
Mullett's petition states: "We understand the traffic patterns and pedestrian use of this portion of State Street. Many people walk along this portion of State Street. Students often walk this route home from Adams Middle School. Often there can be cars, bicycles, and pedestrians on the road at the same time. Providing sidewalk in this location would remove the pedestrians from the roadway, thereby reducing the interactions between vehicular traffic and people."
The hearing will be held at Town Hall at 7 p.m.
