Traffic Circulation Community Input Meeting

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

Dedham Middle School



On November 26, 2018 at the Fall Annual town Meeting, Town Meeting Members voted to approve Article Eight, Appropriation for School Circulation Study.  After going out to bid, the School Committee selected Vanasse Hangen and Brustin (VHB) a firm with many years of experience analyzing and solving challenging traffic/circulation issues.

VHB compiled a comprehensive Data Collection Work Plan and met multiple times with School Committee representatives to discuss the scope of their work.  The first phase of data collection around the high school/middle school/Avery school complex and surrounding neighborhoods began on Wednesday, April 24.  The data collection sites and overall scope of their work can be viewed on these Data Collection Maps.

On Wednesday, May 22 at 7:00 PM at Dedham Middle School, the School Committee will be holding a community meeting to solicit input and discuss concerns of neighbors, parents, and community members that are occuring around the Avery/DMS/DHS campus and surrounding areas in Dedham.  

The goal of this meeting is to gather as much input from all potential stakeholders as possible so that VHB has the best information to arrive at the best recommendations for a comprehensive solution for the Dedham Public Schools and the Town of Dedham.
