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 MPO-supported sidewalk study, building on previous studies in the Village of Rhinebeck (2011), Town of Hyde Park (2013), Town of Pine Plains (2014), and Arlington Town Center (2017).


Scope of Work

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 May 2017. An open house event was held in early August to get input on issues and suggestions, and a public presentation was held in mid-November to share draft recommendations. Both events were at the NorthEast-Millerton Library Annex. The final Plan with prioritized recommendations for improvements was completed in January 2018.
