Safer strolling planned for Route 9

State project will see sidewalks from Fiddlers Lane to Newtown Plaza

— “We will take a look at that, but you have to look at the other aspect of it, too. Without sidewalks right now, they are still walking on the road and without a safe refuge,” Masi said.

Others were interested to hear if there were plans to extend sidewalks further north. Town Planning and Economic Development Director Joe LaCivita said the Colonie Planning Board is currently trying to work sidewalks into any new projects by asking developers to add them into plans.

“As we start to see things change and development, we’re trying to get (sidewalks) as far north as we can,” LaCivita said.
