About the Plan
In 2016, the Town of Chapel Hill Planning and Development Services Department initiated this planning effort in consultation with Stewart Inc., an engineering, design and planning firm located in Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte.
The Mobility and Connectivity Plan outlines the steps necessary for Chapel Hill to become a community where bicycling, walking, and taking transit are safe and convenient, everyday choices. The draft plan is an overall network exercise looking at bicycle, pedestrian, and greenway connectivity, along with transit stop access, throughout the Town. It includes a prioritized list of both short- and long-term projects to improve non-motorized transportation opportunities in Chapel Hill. The Mobility Plan will complement and expand upon existing adopted plans including the Chapel Hill Bike Plan (2014), and the Greenways Master Plan (2013).
Town Staff is wrapping up final comments from the public and advisory boards and will seek Council adoption on October 25th.
