Streetscape Scoping Study – Final Document and Appendices

Thank you so much for the great opportunity and experience building this Scoping Study for Newfane! As we close out the project, I’m attaching the final documents via Google link, reflecting all the refinements that we’ve discussed, including the most recent VTrans grouped comments received May 24th and the Windham Regional Commission comments received April 25th. Here’s the link– please let me know if any of you have trouble accessing the documents:

Also in the linked folder are the three report appendices, the historical and archeological reports from our project partner Hartgen Archeological Associates (very interesting reads), and the one-page Traffic Count Summary prepared by Windham Regional Commission based on their count from last August/September 2022.

Thank you,

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.
