Reminder from Grandpa: The Town Council has adopted an ordinance prohibiting bikes, skateboards, and similar wheeled conveyances from certain sidewalks on Mason Avenue to promote pedestrian safety. The prohibition will encompass the north side of Mason Avenue from Peach Street to Harbor Avenue, the south side of Mason Avenue from Peach Street to Pine Street, and Strawberry Street Plaza.
This will become effective when official signs have been posted. As these sidewalks are in the state right of-way, installation of the signs requires VDOT approval.
The Town has started that process, and the signs should be installed by Public Works sometime this spring.
