Program for New Sidewalks

The City is working on a multi-year program to add sidewalks on at least one side of every street to increase safety for pedestrians and improve the walkability of our community. City staff identified approximately 84 areas in Wheaton that will continue to receive sidewalks through a four-year program. You can see the presentation of this program to the City Council here.
