WADESBORO — In addition to surveys available on www.walkwadesboro.org , the town of Wadesboro is seeking public input on its comprehensive pedestrian plan through a public open house on Sept. 8, from noon to 2 p.m. The open house will be held at the art gallery area in the Lockhart-Taylor Center, located at 514 N. Washington St., Wadesboro.
The town of Wadesboro’s vision is to develop a comprehensive and connected pedestrian network that provides safe access to homes, schools, workplaces, parks and recreational destinations as part of an active and walkable community. The town envisions children walking safely to school, seniors walking safely to nearby destinations, citizens moving safely in high traffic areas, and tourists moving about the community and Uptown areas easily on foot.
Such a comprehensive and connected pedestrian network will enhance the health of Wadesboro’s citizenry while also encouraging economic vitality through walkable commercial districts and neighborhoods.
