Carolina Beach Awarded Pedestrian Planning Grant!

Now in its thirteenth year, the Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grant program helps North Carolina communities develop a comprehensive strategy for expanding bicycle and pedestrian opportunities within a given community.
 
Recipients were selected from a pool of 17 applications by an awards committee comprised of transportation planners from across the state, including representatives of regional planning organizations and councils of government, local governments and NCDOT staff from multiple units.
 
Recipients this year include: 
•    Carolina Beach (pedestrian plan)
•    Carthage (joint bicycle/pedestrian plan)
•    Cramerton (bicycle plan)
•    Currituck County (pedestrian plan)
•    Fayetteville (pedestrian plan)
•    Flat Rock (joint bicycle/pedestrian plan)
•    Laurel Park (joint bicycle/pedestrian plan)
•    Newton (pedestrian plan)
•    Spindale (joint bicycle/pedestrian plan)
The planning grant initiative is jointly sponsored by the NCDOT Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation and the Transportation Planning Branch. To date, over $4 million has been awarded to 173 communities through the planning grant program.
 
Plans funded are not for one specific project, but represent a comprehensive strategy for expanding bicycle and pedestrian opportunities within a given municipality. These plans address facilities, programs, services and regulations that encourage safe walking and bicycling.
