At their 2014 strategic planning session, the Board of Commissioners directed staff to begin work on a town-wide bicycle and pedestrian plan.
Over the past decade, the town has increased investment in pedestrian and multi-use infrastructure. However, as the town's demographics change and infrastructure maintenance needs grow, we need a plan on how to implement bicycle and pedestrian amenities in a cost-effective and strategic manner.
The Town of Burgaw Bicycle and Pedestrian Transportation Plan will be the first town-wide plan for bicycle and pedestrian infrastructure. This plan will assist town departments in prioritizing pedestrian and bicycle improvements, will recommend development ordinance amendments to ensure a cohesive transportation network, and will outline implementation tools and funding methods.
The 2015 Town of Burgaw Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan was adopted at the Board of Commissioners' November 10, 2015 meeting.
Staff is beginning to implement the plan's recommendations as outlined in Phase I of the implementation plan.
