City of Montpelier to establish a Pedestrian Committee

From the City of Montpelier

The Montpelier City Council will establish a standing Pedestrian Committee of up to seven people to advise the Council on all matters relating to pedestrian access and safety. This will include a) receiving concerns and suggestions; b) monitoring pedestrian infrastructure, especially sidewalks; c) researching and collecting information about pedestrian-related matters; d) promoting City Council’s goal to “become a nationally known bike and pedestrian friendly city”; e) encouraging people to walk in Montpelier for transit and recreation; f) representing pedestrians when the use of streets is being determined; and g) assisting in the creation of a pedestrian plan/complete streets plan if determined to be helpful for Montpelier. The Committee will meet on a schedule established by the members but so that decisions on key issues can be made in a timely manner. All recommendations of the Committee will be advisory and will be provided to City Council for final action. Other city officials will participate as needed. Letters of interest should be submitted to the City Manager’s Office, 39 Main Street, Montpelier, Vermont 05602, or via e-mail to, on or by Thursday, April 4th. City Council will make these appointments at their April 10th meeting; applicants will be notified and encouraged to attend. All municipal meetings are accessible to people with disabilities and are held in accordance with the public meeting and public records laws.
