Cotuit Village Pedestrian Safety Improvements
Many in Cotuit are
concerned about the safety of walkers, bicyclers, and joggers,
particularly children. At the request of the Cotuit Civic Association
the Planning and Development Department has engaged the community in several
discussions about these concerns and potential solutions.
With the benefit of
energetic participation from Cotuit residents at several meetings the
concerns fell into two phases for study and implementation. Focusing
first on pedestrian safety issues near the Village core, two Main Street
intersection were studied - Oceanview and School Street – the
Intersection of School Street and High Street is also now included.
Concept plans to address the safety issues at Oceanview and School
Street were developed for both short and long term implementation.
Refinements to these concepts and the inclusion of the School Street,
Piney Road, Highland Road intersection were suggested by Cotuit
residents which will be posted to this page.
Phase two for Cotuit
pedestrian safety improvements will focus on a pedestrian connection
traveling from Main Street up Putnam Avenue to Falmouth Road. Visioning
for phase two will begin in September 2015 with the Cotuit Civic
As new materials
become available they will be posted to this page. Please stay tuned!
