The Boone Town Council is holding a special meeting on Monday, Nov. 7, at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, located at 170 Councill Street, to receive input from the community regarding safety.

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m.

“The purpose of the meeting will be to receive community input and to discuss potential options to remedy safety concerns regarding excessive speeding, pedestrians and bicycle travel along the residential routes between West King Street and Junaluska Road,” a meeting notice from the Town of Boone states.

At the Boone Town Council meeting in October, the Boone Town Council received a request from the town’s transportation committee to hold two meetings, one regarding the aforementioned location and another regarding the New Market area.

The memo to council members noted that the community input meetings will “allow for discussion of potential options available for the affected parties to consider and endorse.”

A meeting for the New Market are hasn’t yet been announced by the Town of Boone.
