Wadesboro Seeking Public Input on Pedestrian Plan
After receiving a grant to develop a comprehensive pedestrian plan, the Town of Wadesboro is seeking public input. Citizens are encouraged to give their feedback through a survey on www.walkwadesboro.org. The survey link is located about halfway down the webpage and highlighted in yellow. Paper copies of the survey are available at Town Hall.
The Town of Wadesboro’s vision is to develop a comprehensive and connected pedestrian network that provides safe access to homes, schools, workplaces, parks and recreational destinations as part of an active and walkable community. The Town envisions children walking safely to school, seniors walking safely to nearby destinations, citizens moving safely in high traffic areas, and tourists moving about the community and Uptown areas easily on foot.
Such a comprehensive and connected pedestrian network will enhance the health of Wadesboro‘s citizenry while also encouraging economic vitality through walkable commercial districts and neighborhoods.
