How can Wellesley improve its streets for all users? 

Give input on Complete Streets at a public hearing on Wednesday, February 5 at 7:30 p.m. in the Kingsbury Room at the Wellesley Police Department. 

Complete Streets is a grant program from the Massachusetts Department of Transportation (Mass DOT) that helps communities provide safety and accessibility for all methods of travel - walking, biking, transit and driving - for people of all ages and abilities. 

Money from the program is used for technical assistance and construction funding for improvement projects

Wellesley recently received a Complete Streets grant of $35,000 and is developing a prioritization plan or "wish list" of improvement projects to consider.

Residents are encouraged to attend the hearing and share their ideas on projects, areas of town (schools, bike lanes, trails, etc.) and user groups (children, senior citizens, citizens with disabilities, etc.) that should receive priority. 

Ideas may also be shared using the interactive map on Wellesley’s Complete Streets portal. This portal, open since November 2019, will close on Friday, February 7. 

There is no limit to the number of comments that may be submitted. 

Prior the Complete Streets public hearing, the Traffic Committee will host a presentation and discussion at 6 p.m. on the updated redesign of the Great Plain Rotary at the intersection of Great Plain Avenue, Wellesley Avenue and Seaver Street.  

Learn more about the proposed improvements to pedestrian safety, sidewalks and overall intersection safety and ask questions.
