Bicycle and pedestrian plans subject of open houses

The towns of Spencer and East Spencer are developing a Comprehensive Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan and are requesting the public’s feedback on the draft plan that has been developed based on the first round of public input sessions and the results of online and paper surveys, as well as a ground-truthing exercise with Spencer and East Spencer staff and community leaders.

Two public open house sessions, one in East Spencer and one in Spencer, will be held to gather additional public input. The sessions will take place on the following dates and will be drop-in style:

Thursday, Oct. 15, from 4-6 pm at the East Spencer Town Hall, 105 S. Long St. in East Spencer

Tuesday, Oct. 20, from 5-7 pm at the Spencer Town Hall, 600 S. Salisbury Ave. in Spencer

Those attending will receive information and share input on the location of pedestrian and bicycle routes and facilities within the towns of Spencer and East Spencer. The same information will be provided at each public open house.

For more information about the open house sessions and the plan, visit the project’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/SESBikePed or contact Kathryn Clifton, land management director for the town of Spencer, at 704-633-2231 or LMDDIR@ci.spencer.nc.us.
