APA award acceptance WalkBikeNC

WalkBikeNC is North Carolina’s first statewide plan for improving walking and bicycling. Championed by the North Carolina Department of Transportation’s Bicycle and Pedestrian Division, the WalkBikeNC comprehensive plan addresses mobility, safety, economics, health, and environmental stewardship. The plan defines the walking and biking needs of residents and conveys the policies, projects, and programs necessary to meet those needs. Developed through a unique collaboration among multiple state agencies and private sector funders, WalkBikeNC also engaged more than 16,000 residents. It has laid the groundwork for new collaborations and partnerships.
