Ridgefield has nine new scenic roads in town. At a meeting last night, residents moved to make the designation official for the Ridgefield Lakes roads. The adoption was made by a voice vote.
All nine roads make up less than three miles of lanes. They are: Clearview Drive, Clearview Terrace, Lake Road, Lakeside Drive, Lakeside Drive Extension, Mountain Road, Shady Lane, Rainbow Drive, Woody Place.
The roads are more narrow than those in town and the scenic designation means that they will not have to be widened to bring them up to standards of other roads in Ridgefield. The previously private roads, which received some plowing, paving and maintenance, will now be maintained by the town with regular paving.
