Dear Community Member,
Main Street in Smithtown has been designated as one of the deadliest streets in the tri-state area, according to a recent Tri-State Transportation Campaign report.
New York State ranks 4th in the nation for pedestrian fatalities for people age 65+. A recent AARP survey found that two-thirds of transportation planners have not yet begun to consider the needs of older people in designing roads.
We can certainly do better than this and we will with your help! We’ve already been successful in other communities on Long Island. Local laws have been passed to improve the “walk-ability” of our streets and roads.
Please join us for an informational meeting on Friday, March 23rd where community leaders will be discussing life-saving alternatives to make Main Street safe for pedestrians, cyclists and all users of the road.
