In general, Middleton is not pedestrian-friendly. I have three kids under 5, and there is nowhere to stroll with them. I do not take them out near our house on Liberty St, because of fast vehicular traffic. I would very much appreciate a town center of sorts that I could stroll in with my kids. A nice trail around Middleton Pond is a good idea. Likewise, the trails off Liberty St. are very poorly maintained and I’ve given up trying to hike them. Thank you for your continued efforts!

An improved traffic pattern that deters commuters from pass through on Rt. 114. Perhaps a rotary or other way of cutting off 114 to encourage less pass through and more local traffic. Certainly the need for more bicycle and pedestrian walk ways are needed and encouraged to further attract both residential and retail in the future. - Anonymous

The town has several areas with sidewalks that take them nowhere. It’s halfway to walkability; no point in having a sidewalk if you can’t get anywhere useful. Connect the sidewalks around town. - Anyonymous

MBTA bus service, at least up and down Main St. connecting to a commuter rail station. The town has always received a small ($60K) stipend each year from MBTA to NOT have this service. Now that many of us are getting older, it would be a great help. - Craig
