Complete Streets PROJECT

The Guilford Safe Streets Taskforce has partnered with Schmidt Design Group to produce a comprehensive report of transportation infrastructure in the town, engaging Guilford community members in envisioning solutions for greater safety and comfort for all road users.


For the foundational work the Safe Streets Task Force and Complete Streets Project team has done, Guilford resident Glenn Weston-Murphy said:

"My thanks to all of you for enlightening me and giving a new perspective on our “travelways.” Over the course of the last few days your downtown walk and workshops helped me to see our town in a new light. I applaud all of your efforts to make Guilford a better place for all. As I did my loop around the perimeter of downtown this morning I saw the way with a really fresh view."

What is the Complete Streets Project?

Guilford's Complete Streets project is an ongoing initiative seeking to produce a set of recommendations to improve safety on Guilford's roads. At the conclusion of a thoughtful and transparent planning process, the Town will be presented with a Complete Streets Plan to serve as a blueprint for future projects and programs that can be implemented by the community in the years to come.

How did this project begin?

In 2015 and 2016, two significant pedestrian and bicyclist projects (the Shoreline Greenway Trail and the Nut Plains Path) were brought to the Board of Selectmen, and as required by the town charter, public meetings were held for concerned residents to provide input on the proposed projects. In both cases, significant public opposition emerged, the projects were not approved, and it became clear to many Town officials that the existing process for proposing "non-motorist" transportation upgrades was not meeting the needs of the community. To address these issues, the Safe Streets Task Force was created by the BOS and convened its first meeting in June 2018.
