The Town Council Public Works Subcommittee approved a recommendation to install new sidewalks on Main Street as part of the $4 million bond recently approved by the Town Council for New Canaan's road paving initiative.

The vote was passed 3-1 with Chairman Paul Foley voting against spending money on new sidewalks.

This vote does not start or mandate construction of sidewalks but serves as the subcommittee's recommendation to the full Town Council.

Town Council will deliberate and vote on the matter at its regularly scheduled meeting March 16. If the project is approved, then Public Works will begin by conducting a detailed survey on Main Street before bidding and construction begin.
