Newfane villages to host potluck, open forum on traffic calming

WILLIAMSVILLE—Traffic calming for walkable villages is the focus of a Sunday, Oct. 14, event to be held at the Williamsville Hall on Dover Road.

The evening begins with a community potluck at 5:30 p.m., followed by an open forum centered on making villages safe and walkable through efforts to calm speeding through Williamsville, South Newfane, and Brookside — the villages along Dover Road in the town of Newfane.

The evening is hosted by the Newfane Planning Commission and presented by village traffic-calming liaisons Annie Landenberger, Bud Bergmann, Jen Stanchfield, and Angela Sanborn.

Those attending the potluck should bring a dish to share.

This traffic-calming forum is sponsored by a Vermont Municipal Planning Grant from the Department of Housing and Community Development.

Those wishing to see an agenda in advance can view it on the Town’s website at under Planning Commission agendas or write
