ROAD SAFETY TASK FORCE
What is the RSTF?
The RSTF committee is charged by the Selectmen to investigate vehicular and pedestrian safety issues on town roads. We make recommendations to town officials for possible infrastructure improvements, personnel needs, or operational components such as sidewalks, traffic signs/lights, speed zones, etc. that enhance the safety of motorists and pedestrians. Our committee consists of 5 volunteer members and 2 staff liaisons (town engineer and police representative).
We normally meet on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6:00 p.m. at the DPW conference room. Meetings are posted at the town sites.
A major accomplishment was the Master Sidewalk Objectives Plan that was accepted by the Selectmen. The Committee is currently working on updating the plan.
