The Andover community has formed the Andover Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee which advocates for improvements to pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure. The goals of the Committee are to:
Improve equity of access to destinations in our community
Enhance the ability of Andover residents to make short trips by walking and biking instead of by car
Improve safety for all users of our streets
Build streets for all people - not only those who can afford to buy a car.
Incorporate Green Infrastructure and Regenerative Landscape Design into the Installation and Maintenance of Complete Streets
Improve access to local businesses
The Andover Planning Division will work closely with the Andover Pedestrian and Bicycle Committee to develop projects that are representative of the needs and desires of our community. Both organizations hold a shared belief that the more accessible our streets are the more resilient our community, environment, and economy will be.
