Woodside: Road, pedestrian path improvements

 

The Woodside Town Council, in its annual review of proposed spending on road improvements over the coming two budget years, unanimously accepted a plan on March 8 to spend about $706,800 on 13 roads, but their attention focused on pedestrian improvements.

The plan showed $40,000 for pedestrian projects in the 2011-12 budget year and $20,000 for 2012-13. Perhaps that latter figure should be $40,000 as well, Councilman Peter Mason said.

"I think we really ought to think about what we're going to do for pedestrians," Mr. Mason said, referring in particular to a much-used section of Woodside Road between the elementary school and Canada Road. "I think we ought to be dedicating at least $40,000 a year," he said.

Mayor Ron Romines, agreeing that improving walkways in town is a priority, suggested thinking about an optimum plan for pedestrian access.

The plan also includes per year spending of $5,000 to rehabilitate bridges, $5,000 to seal cracks in asphalt, and $10,000 for road striping.
