Your Feedback is Needed: Fletcher Connects Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan

Posted on 07/15/2020

Fletcher Connects Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan

The Town, in partnership with NCDOT, is working on a pedestrian and bike plan for Fletcher. This plan will identify walking and biking projects that the Town can pursue in order to create a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community. The project began last October, and we hosted a community meeting in February 2020. We are in a new phase of the project and would like the community to provide input on the draft project recommendations. Since it is not advisable to host an in-person session, we are going virtual and we’d like your help in ranking projects before we produce the final document.

 

Share Your Feedback

The Town is underway in completing the Fletcher Connects Pedestrian and Bicycle Plan. This plan will identify walking and biking projects that the Town can pursue in order to create a bicycle and pedestrian friendly community. We are in a new phase of the project and would like the community to provide input on the draft project recommendations. Since it is not advisable to host an in-person session, we are going virtual and we’d like your help in ranking projects before we produce the final document. The following offers several ways to get involved.

 

Project Update Presentation

If you would like an update on project activities since the survey and public meeting, which many of you participated in, check out this project update.

 

Take the Survey

Community members that took part in our previous survey and attended our community meeting in February helped the Team identify which projects are important to Fletcher. Based on these activities, there are a total of 14 projects that have risen to the top. We’d like you to rank these projects at this survey.

 

Attend a Live Q&A Session

We will host two live Q&A sessions with our consultant team on Thursday, July 23: one at 10:00 AM and another at 6:00 PM. The following instructions provide detail on how to join the meeting by your computer. If you are unable to join by computer and want to only join by phone, simply use the call-in information below.

 

The room will be locked 10 minutes after the meeting; if you arrive late, please just wait in the virtual “lobby” and we will let you in.
