Informational hearing in Kent tonight about sidewalk project

A second informational hearing  will be held in Kent tonight about the proposed plan to refurbish Kent's sidewalks.  The focus of this meeting will be to address the unanswered questions from the January meeting.  Issues raised during that time included the cost and length of a loan, options for financing, the construction impact and if it will be done in phases so whole town isn’t torn up at once.  There were also questions about whether the work will be done in asphalt or concrete, what the lights will look like, and about Handicapped parking.  Questions about light pollution and drainage issues were also raised.  Michael Doherty, from the design firm of Milone & MacBroom will attend the February meeting to answer some of the questions.  The meeting is at 7pm at Kent Town Hall.
