The Discover Downtown Westbrook Design Team has been working with the
Bicycle Coalition of Maine in an effort to test ways to slow traffic,
improve safety & enhance walkability on Main Street. BCM learned
yesterday they are a recipient of an AARP 2020 Challenge Grant
This grant will help us implement BCM's *Imagine People Here*
<https://www.bikemaine.org/advocacy/imagine-people-here/> program on
This program will allow for temporary installations narrowing the turning
radius at five spots:
● The crossing at Pleasant Street
● The crossing at Stroudwater Street
● The crossing at Dunn Street
● The crossing at Giles Street
● The crossing at the Riverbank Park access road
You can see examples of how this will be implemented here
The Design Team & BCM are looking for some volunteers to help with the
installation *September 3*. We're looking for volunteers between the
hours of 9a - 4p with a maximum of eight (8) people at any one time.
Volunteers will be asked to do things like paint, install bollards,
clean/sweep the street - nothing too intensive but it is a bit time
consuming. If you can lend a hand at any part of the day, please let me
We'll be following appropriate social distance & masking protocols and
volunteers will be provided high visibility vests. This is a good
opportunity for students, Scouts & similar groups looking for service
hours. If you know of such groups, please forward this message to them.
They can reach out to me.
I'm happy to answer any questions. Thanks in advance.
