GROTON — In preparation of an upcoming revision of the town’s Master Plan, Groton officials are inviting residents to a downtown tour, “Walk Groton,” to be held Saturday. The tour will start at 9 a.m. at Town Hall with an introduction and project overview, followed by a “walking audit” of the town’s center from 9:15 to 10:45 a.m. and reviews of findings and discussions from 11 to 1:45 a.m. The event is organized by the Montachusett Regional Planning Commission. Rain date is Sunday.
Event-goers will identify positive and negative aspects of downtown design that affect pedestrian travel as well as potential solutions to improve pedestrian safety and accessibility. Town officials will be on hand to answer questions.
