Arlington Town Center Pedestrian Plan

A pedestrian plan for the Arlington Town Center is being developed by the Poughkeepsie-Dutchess County Transportation Council in coordination with a local task force. The plan has three main objectives:

  • Improve pedestrian access to the Town Center
  • Enhance the pedestrian experience in Arlington
  • Establish a vision for what the Town Center could look like

FOCUS: Create a walkable, pedestrian-friendly Main Street

A presentation given to the Business Improvement District can be found here.
