Planners working on a draft bicycle and pedestrian plan for the southeastern area of Pender County are looking for feedback from the community.
The plan is to identify existing challenges to bicycling and walking, propose a preferred bicycle and pedestrian network, and detail the specific policy, program and infrastructure recommendations, officials said. The plan is to include research on existing conditions, an assessment of the network, and provide near- and long-term recommendations.
