Bike Mount Holly: Open House
Mount Holly, NC – A group of dedicated individuals including City employees, community members, and members of the Kimley-Horn planning and design engineering consulting team have been working on a project called Bike Mount Holly. This Comprehensive Bicycle Plan has been assessing current bicycle conditions, identifying on-going needs, and recommending ways to make it safer and easier to bike in Mount Holly.
This community-driven planning process included three key phases: Visioning and Needs, Analysis and Recommendations, and Documentation and Adoption. The Plan has been using existing data and public input to help build the foundation for coordinated recommendations. The Mount Holly Comprehensive Bicycle Plan will provide the community a blueprint for creating a "bike"able community for everyone in Mount Holly.
This process will conclude with an open house on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at the Mount Holly Municipal Complex. The goal of this event is to walk the community through the various stages of the Bike Mount Holly plan. The interactive stations, provided for use by the attendees, are organized accordingly.
Attendees will visit stations to learn more about the process, engagement results, recommendations, and priorities. Materials displayed at the previous meetings will also be available.
The open house will serve the following purposes:
Educate participants on the planning process, including how community participation has been reflected in the plan.
Introduce the plan's recommendations and orient attendees on how the plan will be communicated.
Create informed consent among the community as it relates to the plan, and gather feedback on communication of the final plan.
The open house will be held on Thursday, April 18 from 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM in the Grand Hall of the Mount Holly Municipal Complex located at 400 E. Central Avenue, Mount Holly, NC 28120. This is a family-friendly event open to the public.
