As a citizen of Williston, I always am grateful that the city is trying to make things better for all of us. So many times I find myself saying things about where we live, and then I wonder if anyone would even listen. I have Mayor Klug's cell number, and I consider that a privilege. But I can't call Howard all the time, can I?

The City of Williston is giving citizens a chance to weigh in with opinions about where we live with a town hall meeting called Are Our Streets Safe? Williston residents are invited to participate in a crucial community event aimed at enhancing the safety of our city's infrastructure. The Williston Infrastructure Safety Plan Town Hall meeting will be held at the Williston Community Library on March 20, from 4:30 to 8 pm.

Are Our Streets Safe?

What Can You Expect At This Town Hall:

This gathering presents a valuable opportunity for residents to actively engage in the planning process and contribute to shaping the future of our city's infrastructure safety. Visualizations of data informing recommendations will be showcased, allowing attendees to gain insights into the planning effort. During the majority of the meeting, an open house format will prevail, offering attendees flexibility to explore various aspects of the plan at their own pace. At 6:30 pm, there will be a brief presentation elucidating the planning effort, providing context and clarity for participants.

Will There Be Time For Public Comments:

Residents are encouraged to voice their concerns and preferences, aiding in the identification of areas needing attention and the formulation of safety recommendations. This plan is particularly focused on mitigating fatalities and serious injuries resulting from vehicle crashes, with a priority on vulnerable road users such as pedestrians, bicyclists, and underserved segments of our population.

The scope of the plan encompasses all transportation systems within Williston's city limits, including roads, sidewalks, and trails. By actively participating in this town hall meeting, residents can play a vital role in making our community safer and more accessible for everyone. If you want to make a change or get more information, this is the time to show up and speak up. You can get more details from the city's website here. Mark your calendars and plan to be at the Williston Library on March 20 to contribute to a safer future for Williston.
