The Fayetteville City Council passed a resolution in support of the Bicycle and Pedistrian Planning Grant Initiative Program.
(from NCDOT memo) – The Bicycle and Pedestrian Planning Grant Initiative is a matching grant program that encourages municipalities to develop comprehensive bicycle plans and pedestrian plans. The Division of Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation (DPBT) and the Transportation Planning Branch (TPB) sponsor this grant. All North Carolina municipalities are eligible and are encouraged to apply.
Once the NCDOT accepts Fayetteville’s grant application, city staff will begin to develop a comprehensive bicycle plan and prioritize projects for implementation.
