Georgetown hosting workshop on walkability and connectivity

GEORGETOWN – The town of Georgetown has retained a Pennsylvania firm to help determine opportunities and priorities to improve the ability to walk and bike in Georgetown.

Simone Collins Landscape Architecture of Norristown will complete the walkability/connectivity study.

The plan will serve to guide and support decision-making by the Georgetown town council on how to plan for sidewalk and bike route projects and support efforts to attract and secure funding for these improvements.

The public is encouraged to attend the first public meeting workshop for the study. The brainstorming meeting will be held on Thursday, April 19, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Georgetown Town Hall, located at 39 The Circle, Georgetown.

Additional meetings are scheduled for Thursday, June 21 and Thursday, Sept. 20. Both sessions will run from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

For additional information, contact Georgetown Town Manager Gene Dvornick at 856-7391.
