Thursday meeting to focus on Nashua’s downtown area

A meeting focused on turning downtown streets into livable, walkable communities will take place Thursday night.

Part of the evening will be spent identifying walking and bike routes that people use to reach neighborhood destinations. Residents will also talk about any physical or safety barriers interfering in getting around the city.

The meeting will focus on an area west of Main Street, bounded by Elm Street on the east, Simon Street on the west, Kinsley Street on the south and the Nashua River on the north.

The workshop will be Thursday night at Ledge Street Elementary School at 7 p.m.

The Nashua Transit System will offer a special Citybus route to transport residents to the meeting. Buses will leave the Nashua Transit Center on Elm Street every 15 minutes from 6:30 p.m. until 7:15 p.m. There will also be buses returning to the transit center after the meeting.

The project is made possible through grants from the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation and Harvard Pilgrim Foundation.
