Multi-modal Transportation and Parking Plan
A multi-modal transportation and parking plan focusing on the Town’s commercial
core complements the land use strategies plan. The plan quantifies
current parking demand; forecasts future parking demand based upon existing
zoning and development plans; and, locates some additional parking for demand
in the Town core area adjacent to the railroad tracks.
Recommendations integrate concepts from the Town’s Comprehensive Plan
to include transit, walking, bike routes, etc. The plan confirms that the
current parking supply is adequate, and that further pedestrian safety
improvements are warranted in the commercial core area.
