Westport to hold series of public meetings highlighting traffic and pedestrian safety

The Town of Westport is hosting a series of meetings with residents to address their concerns about traffic and pedestrian safety.
One resident says she is concerned with the lack of sidewalks and crosswalks on Sylvan Road South near Riverside Avenue.
Monica Buesser says there are a lack of safe options when crossing the street when she walks with dogs from one of the parks along the river. She says there is a continuous sidewalk, but no crosswalk to cross the street.
First Selectwoman Jennifer Tooker has scheduled a series of meetings with residents of each RTM district.
The meetings will take place in coordination with the Public Works, Planning and Zoning and Public Safety Departments.
Residents in each RTM district will be able to talk about their concerns when it comes to traffic, pedestrian and bicycle safety.
Town officials are expected to discuss the steps that are feasible or already in progress to help mitigate issues.
Residents can attend any of the meetings, but are encouraged to attend the meeting that's specific to their district.
The meetings will take place on Thursdays at 7 p.m. in the Town Hall auditorium.
The meetings will run through May 19.
