It takes a vil­lage

Rappahannock News - - The Rapp -

The Sper­ryville com­mu­nity met to dis­cuss ways to calm traf­fic and im­prove pedes­trian safety. About 35 res­i­dents shared twenty pro­pos­als and ad­di­tional sug­ges­tions were made via so­cial me­dia.

Ac­cord­ing to Sper­ryville busi­ness owner Kerry Sut­ten, pro­pos­als will now be con­sid­ered and shared with county and state of­fi­cials as part of an ef­fort be­ing led by the Sper­ryville Com­mu­nity Foun­da­tion.

Among the top rated pro­pos­als dis­cussed: re­zon­ing Sper­ryville Pike along Route 522 to al­low for an ex­ten­sion of a side­walk; con­nect­ing all of Sper­ryville, in­clud­ing churches, res­i­dents, and the ceme­tery, with a side­walk to avoid walk­ing in the road; re­duc­ing speed on 211 from Old Hol­low Road through the Sper­ryville busi­ness com­mu­nity; adding cross­walks on Main Street; re­quest­ing Main Street be one-way; adding a walk­ing lane along Route 211; re­duc­ing speed on Main Street; and vis­ually nar­row­ing Main Street to en­cour­age traf­fic to slow.

The full list of pro­pos­als is avail­able at www.Sper­ryFest.org sales trailer at the Quicke Mart and stock up while supplies last ($6 per pint and two for $10). They will also be sell­ing Vir­ginia peanuts, good old­fash­ioned brooms and Rap­pa­han­nock T-shirts — all of which, by the way, make great hol­i­day gifts.

Pro­ceeds ben­e­fit Rap­pa­han­nock County causes through­out the year.
