Franklin County Bicycle & Pedestrian Plan Charrette (Virtual) SCHEDULE

Franklin County, NC — Franklin County is developing a bicycle and pedestrian master plan. Through review of previous or ongoing planning & development efforts, remote and field analysis, and public involvement and stakeholder input, the team will identify a countywide recommended bicycle and pedestrian network. This project will consider infrastructure improvements such as sidewalks, crosswalks, bike lanes, and greenways in addition to complementary policies.


The community is invited to participate in this interactive, virtual workshop that will help shape the overall master plan.
