Pawling Pedestrian Project to Present Final Plan

The Village of Pawling Pedestrian Plan project team will give a presentation on Monday, June 17, from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Village Hall, 9 Memorial Avenue, to share the Plan’s recommendations and design concepts. “We encourage everyone to come to this presentation,” says Mayor Rob Liffland. “The project team has been working with the Village for a year now, and we are excited to share the final plan.”

A local Task Force worked with the Dutchess County Transportation Council (DCTC) to develop the Pedestrian Plan. The Plan is intended to help the village officials identify priorities, develop funding applications, and implement projects, while helping agencies prioritize work on state, county, and local roads in the village. The Plan focuses on improving the village’s walkable center to enhance safety and access for residents and visitors, as well as improving connections to important locations outside the center, including schools and parks. It includes a prioritized set of recommendations to improve walking in the village.

The Plan was developed based on input received from the public, local officials, and agencies including Metro-North Railroad, the Dutchess County Department of Public Works, and the New York State Department of Transportation. The project was funded through the DCTC’s federal planning program, at no cost to the Village of Pawling. A public open house was held in November 2018 to introduce the project and gather input on draft improvement concepts. More information about the Plan is available on the DCTC website at online.
