This study identifies relatively low-cost, easy-to-implement improvements to the pedestrian and bicycle environments in six small town centers in the Boston region: Duxbury (Hall's Corner), Essex, Holbrook, Lynnfield, Norfolk, and Southborough. The recommendations aim to improve pedestrian and bicyclist access and safety in these town centers by making connections to activity centers, including residential and commercial areas, schools, libraries, churches, and recreation areas, and by improving the quality of existing infrastructure. Also included is a set of general recommendations and a discussion of best practices in planning and designing improvements to the pedestrian and bicycle networks.
