The City of Raleigh is creating its Pedestrian Plan. So whether you use the sidewalks and crosswalks (or lack thereof) to stroll to your fave ice cream or cupcake shop, power walk with your baby stroller, or rush to beat the flashing hand and impending green light so you can arrive at work in one piece – they want your feedback!
Tomorrow, Wednesday, June 8th, the City is holding an Open House tomorrow night at the Sertoma Center from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. Staff will be on hand at this event to afford residents the opportunity to give feedback, provide information, and get answers to their questions about pedestrian problems, facilities and future planning. Presentations will be held at 5:30 and 6:30 p.m.
If you can’t make it out tomorrow night, don’t worry! You can still participate in developing the Pedestrian Plan in two other ways:
- Use this interactive mapping tool, CommunityWalk, zoom into your neighborhood and provide information about streets and routes you use, if they are pedestrian-friendly (or unfriendly), and identify areas where improvements are needed.
- And also use this link to complete a survey about walking in Raleigh. It’s 10 short questions about why you do or don’t choose to use walking as a form of transportation and then some quick demographic info.
For more information visit the City of Raleigh’s Pedestrian Plan website.
If you are able to attend the, the public session will be held at the Sertoma Art Center, located at 1400 W Millbrook Road, Raleigh, NC. The meeting will be held in the Cardinal Room.
You can travel by bus from downtown Raleigh on the # 6 CAT Bus from Moore Square Transit Facility to Crabtree Valley Mall. Transfer to the #23C CAT Bus, alighting across the street from the Sertoma Art Center.
