Walkable Newfane – Village Center Sidewalk and Crosswalks Scoping Study

Walkable Newfane

The Town of Newfane is studying potential changes to create a safer, more walkable village center. This summer and fall, the town will be working with the Windham Regional Commission and Planners and Engineers from Dubois & King to assess potential sidewalk improvements, pedestrian crossings and other changes to Route 30 in the Village of Newfane.

WARNING: Please be aware that the Town of Newfane is not sending out emails regarding new tax bills. If you receive one, please do not open it or reply. It appears to be a scam. The Newfane Treasurer will not be mailing out new tax bills until July, 2022. If a revised tax bill is necessary for anyone, it will be sent by mail, not by email. The only tax bills that are sent by email are when someone requests a copy be sent that way.

A statement passed by the Selectboard at the Sept. 21, 2020 meeting:
The Town of Newfane condemns hate speech, prejudice, and acts intended to induce fear in any person based on their identity. We are a community of diverse backgrounds and opinions, and we draw strength from it. Everyone deserves to be treated with dignity and feel safe in our beautiful town.
