MaineDOT has determined that it will not make any awards under its Bicycle and Pedestrian Program this year. That’s the bad news.
The good news is that our application was awarded sufficient “points” to have been selected if MaineDOT had followed their normal course of action.
In addition, having identified the areas in which our application was not awarded the full number of points possible, we are now in a position to revise the application to increase our score. This will not require any changes to the design of the project; instead, we need to clarify some aspects that the reviewers did not understand and to make some other changes to the way the project is presented.
We hope to make these changes and have the Town submit the revised application in August 2018.
