The Salisbury Pathways Committee was formed in July 2014 by the Board of Selectmen with the stated purpose to “investigate walking access within and among the village centers.” The committee has worked with the public and other town committees to define areas of priority in connecting the villages of Lakeville and Salisbury and extending access from the town centers outward along routes 41, 44 and 112.
The Pathways Committee works closely with the Connecticut Connectivity Program (CCP), which was formed in 2016 to encourage walkability and safety in CT towns and cities, and which provides grants to help finance necessary improvements. The Committee applied for and was awarded a $400,000 3-year grant for our first project and most urgent need: the sidewalk from Lincoln City Road to the fire house, Salisbury Central School’s emergency evacuation route. We are working with DOT and the Town of Salisbury to bring this project to fruition.
We encourage everyone in our towns to support our efforts to create a more pedestrian-friendly town. Details of proposed projects as well as information on the grant and our progress can be found in the Salisbury Pathways Committee minutes on the Town of Salisbury website. Happy and safe walking!
