New sidewalks for New Canaan

The way has been paved for new sidewalks to be installed in New Canaan.

The vote was extremely close as residents were divided on the issue.

More than 3,300 voters cast their ballots and the $4 million sidewalk project was approved by a 6 percent margin.

Supporters said installing sidewalks would give children a secure path to walk to school.

Others said it would involve narrowing the road, which would make passing dangerous.
