EAST SPENCER — The town will host an open forum meeting next week to get ideas and suggestions from residents about the town’s pedestrian and bicycle plan.

The meeting will be from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on July 14 and held at town hall, 105 S. Long St. The meeting will be informal with those interested at liberty to come and go throughout the meeting.

The plan is being developed jointly by the town of East Spencer and Spencer, who want input from residents about bike and pedestrian lanes.

The town staff will have maps and exhibits available and town officials and members of the steering committee will also be on hand to answer specific questions about the project. The last meeting was held in June in Spencer.

The town of East Spencer received $36,000 with Spencer for a bicycle and pedestrian planning grant.

Residents will asked to respond to a short survey, available in written form and via a website. Anyone with questions or concerns prior to the Tuesday meeting is asked to call East Spencer Town Hall at 704-636-7111.
