Development of the Village of Ballston Spa Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan is underway. The Plan will assess sidewalk improvements, recommend potential solutions for traffic calming, and recommend bicycle infrastructure improvements, including connecting the Village to the Zim Smith Trail. Starting on June 28th , there will be a 1-block pop-up demonstration bicycle and pedestrian project on Hyde Boulevard between Chapman Street and Grove Street. The 1-week pop-up demonstration project will include a typical bicycle lane in each direction. We would appreciate hearing what you think about this demonstration project – please fill out the survey at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PBMP_Demonstration

On June 30th, the Consultant Team will be at Kelley Park from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM to discuss the project. Residents are encouraged to attend to hear more about the project and share their thoughts and ideas for improvements and implementation priorities.  A short presentation will be held at 6 PM and the remaining time will be an open house. Additional public input opportunities will follow once the Draft Plan is available later this Fall.
