BRADFORD, Vt. — The Selectboard last week scheduled a special Town Meeting for June to determine the fate of a scoping study of a bike path or sidewalk on Mill Street, also known as Creamery Road.

The study would examine the feasibility of constructing the path to a park and ride at the junction of Route 25 and Plateau Acres.

The meeting will take place on Saturday, June 22 at 9 a.m. at the Bradford Academy Building, 172 North Main Street.

There are two articles on the warning, which the board signed on May 9: one to discuss the sidewalk or bike path scoping and design project and the other to determine whether to allow the town to move forward with the scoping study.

Voters rejected an article to cease scoping for the proposed sidewalk at Bradford’s March 2 Town Meeting. Due to confusion about the intent of the article, residents subsequently petitioned for a revote.

The board had previously scheduled the special Town Meeting meeting for May 18, but canceled it after it determined it was scheduled at an improperly warned meeting, according to the Journal Opinion.

CORRECTION: Bradford, Vt., voters rejected a Town Meeting article, 68-54, to cease scoping, design and/or construction of a walking/bicycle path or sidewalk along Creamery Road to the park and ride at the intersection of Route 25 and Plateau Acres. A previous version of this story was incorrect in the outcome of the Town Meeting vote.
