Chairman Joe Markey began the Planning Board’s discussion of sidewalks at their November 9th meeting by saying that Hopkinton doesn’t have a sidewalk plan, but that now would be an opportune time for the Planning Board to begin work on documenting priorities and preparing a plan. Although not directly responsible for sidewalk maintenance, the board frequently encounters sidewalk issues when reviewing and approving site plans.

One of the goals set by the Planning Board in July was to work with the Department of Public Works (DPW) to develop a comprehensive sidewalk plan.
