Sidewalks & Pathways Initiative

Description

The Pedestrian and Bicycle Access project seeks to make Blue Hill more pedestrian- and bicycle-friendly by improving the extent and condition of our network of sidewalks and signage for pedestrians and cyclists. The hope is that, if successful, a substantially greater number of residents and visitors to Blue Hill will take a healthful walk or bicycle ride around town.

No MaineDOT Grant This Year…

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.

South St. Improvement Grant Application Filed

The Town of Blue Hill has filed an application with MaineDOT for $400,000 of state/federal funds (to match a $100,000 local contribution by the Town) toward the redevelopment of South St. between the rotary and The Bay School.

If approved, the funds would be available in 2020.

Fingers crossed…

For those who are interested, the application as filed can be downloaded from the following links:
