“Online surveys will allow residents of Smithton and Scottdale to provide input for potential improvements to support walking, bicycling and other non-motorized modes of transportation in the communities.
The surveys, available through June 30 at smithtonboro.us and scottdaleborough.com, will be used in developing an Active Transportation Plan and a Complete Streets Policy for the boroughs.
Active transportation refers to any mode that is self-propelled or non-motorized, such as kayaking or riding a horse. The streets policy will look at ways to increase safety for pedestrians, bicyclists, people with disabilities and those who use public transportation.”
