Millerton Pedestrian Plan

Transportation Council
Eoin Wrafter, Commissioner

 

Pedestrian infrastructure plays a critical role in building healthy, vibrant communities. To support communities in their efforts to become more walkable, the Dutchess County Transportation Council (DCTC), in partnership with the Dutchess County Planning Department, assists local municipalities with pedestrian plans.

The Millerton Pedestrian Plan is the fifth DCTC-supported pedestrian study completed in recent years, building on previous studies in Rhinebeck, Hyde Park, Pine Plains, and the Arlington Town Center. These previous studies can be found under our Publications page.

For this project, representatives from a Village-designated volunteer Task Force worked with the DCTC to guide the study. The project included three main components: 1) An inventory of existing pedestrian infrastructure in the Village; 2) Recommendations to improve pedestrian access and safety in the Village; and 3) Design concepts for several focus areas.

The inventory of existing conditions was completed in spring 2017, which was followed by an open house that summer to gather feedback on local pedesttian issues and possible improvements. The DCTC held a subsequesnt public presentation in fall 2017 to share its draft recommendations. The DCTC completed the Final Plan with prioritized recommendations in early 2018 and presented its findings to the Village Board in Feb. 2018.
