Quechee Village Bicycle/Pedestrian Scoping Study

Kick-off Community Meeting

When: Wednesday, April 2nd at 6:30 pm  

Where: Ottauquechee School Cafeteria, 304 Dody Lane, Quechee (click for directions)

The Town of Hartford received a grant from the Vermont Agency of Transportation to conduct a bicycle/pedestrian scoping study for several road segments in Quechee, including Quechee Main Street, Waterman Hill Road, Woodstock Road (Route 4), West Gilson Avenue, Cross Street and Quechee-Hartland Road.

The study will examine the purpose and need for the project; existing conditions, including right-of-way, utilities, private property, natural and cultural resources; and long-term or ongoing maintenance requirements for each alternative. The eventual outcome from the study will be a preferred alternative for each road segment, cost estimates and prioritization for future implementation.

The Town has hired Resource Systems Group, which in turn has teamed up with Alta Planning & Design. The April 2nd meeting is the first of three community meetings planned for the project. Residents are encouraged to attend the meeting and provide input regarding pedestrian and bicycle accessibility in Quechee and ways to improve the safety and experience of walkers and bicyclists. If you have questions about the project, please contact:

Folks, I think we can all agree that this meeting will be the best time to surface any and all concerns or questions you might have related to this study — before the study gets under way in earnest. If you are not able to make the meeting, please respond with your questions or notes and we will make sure they are raised.The Quechee Village Steering Committee, formed three years ago to help win the Quechee Village Center designation that has helped local businesses access various state grants is acting as the community intermediary for the project. If you would like to join the committee, click on the link at the start of this paragraph and sign up for membership in its Google Group.

The hashtag we’ll use for this on Twitter is #QVTSWS (for Quechee Vermont SideWalk Study)
