The Davidson Pedestrian Master Plan Steering Committee and consultants from Alta Planning + Design are seeking public input on a proposed master plan for pedestrian and bicycle transportation in town. There’s an online survey where you can offer your thoughts.
A series of meetings earlier this month at Town Hall allowed citizens and consultants to discuss “goals and objectives, opportunities and barriers, and safety and education for pedestrian and bicycle transportation in Davidson,” according town officials.
Town officials say the plan “will become our map to complete the necessary town-wide infrastructure improvements, policies, and programs to make Davidson truly walkable and bikeable for all our citizens.”
