Remember, September is Try Transit Month! With the recent gas shortage causing long waits at the pump, it’s a good time to try taking transit around the Triangle area. Or, switch to an active mode such as biking or walking, at least for a portion of your trip (which extends the life of your current tank of gas, too). Check out gotriangle.org/trytransit or ask me how!
Chapel Hill is currently developing a Mobility and Connectivity Plan which should be completed in 2017. According to their website:
Do you walk, bike, run and wheel around Chapel Hill? The Town of Chapel Hill wants your input in developing a Mobility and Connectivity Plan that will recommend connections to significant destinations, close gaps in walkability, and encourage healthier and more active behavior in residents and visitors. The study will be an overall network exercise, looking at bicycle, pedestrian, and greenway connectivity.
There are plenty of opportunities to provide your input on what the priorities for the plan should be:
- Take their short survey.
- Join me tonight, Tuesday September 6th, for a drop-in public input session between 4pm and 7pm (you can drop in any time and stay as long as you like) at the Chapel Hill Public Library Meeting Room A.
- Add your comments to the interactive wiki map.
Hope to see some of you tonight at the input session!
