The FRCOG assisted several Franklin County towns to apply for funding through the MassDOT Shared Streets and Spaces Program. The program provided funding for communities to quickly implement improvements to sidewalks, curbs, streets, on-street parking spaces, and off-street parking lots in support of public health, safe mobility, and renewed commerce. The FRCOG assisted the Town of Gill to secure $20,023 in funding for temporary pedestrian accommodations in the town center, and the Town of Montague to secure $35,300 for temporary traffic calming and pedestrian facilities on Third Street, L Street, and at Unity Park. Additional Shared Streets and Spaces grants in Franklin County were awarded to Buckland, Greenfield, Orange, and Shelburne.
