The New Milford Town Council has signed off on holding a public information meeting about adding sidewalks along Route 7. New Milford received a $1.8 federal grant last year to improve accessibility. The grant requires a $400,000 local match. A public information meeting is aimed at giving the town's consultant an idea of where residents want new sidewalks and locations already approved by the state. One proposal calls for sidewalks from Candlewood Lake Road South to Sullivan Road, Pickett District Road to Three Brothers Family Restaurant and by Taco Bell. Sidewalks could also connect Aspetuck Avenue to Canterbury School and to downtown. The public hearing won't be scheduled until after restrictions on gatherings due to coronavirus concerns have been lifted.
