Hendersonville just kicked off an effort to update their 2007 Pedestrian Plan that will identify the community’s vision, strategies, goals, and recommended actions for the future of walking. The project will take about 12 months to complete and will be closely guided by community engagement.
On July 25, and throughout the month of August, the City will be hosting community engagement activities. A drop-in style public meeting will be hosted July 25 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM, where anyone can share their thoughts about walking in the City. An online survey will be launched that day and will run throughout August to collect similar feedback.
Who Is this Meeting For?
The meeting and survey are for anyone who lives, works, or visits Hendersonville.
What Will We Do With This Information?
Your input will be used to create a Pedestrian Plan for Hendersonville. Once the Plan is adopted, the City and NCDOT can use it to direct how we build projects, make policy choices, build programs and events, and apply for new types of funding.
This project was made possible with a grant from the North Carolina Department of Transportation. It is being led by Asheville-based transportation consulting firm Traffic Planning & Design.

Pedestrian Plan Steering Committee
To complete Hendersonville's Pedestrian Plan, NCDOT hired a consultant, Traffic Planning and Design Inc. which formed an ad-hoc steering committee to review transportation projects in the area. The Pedestrian Plan Steering Committee was approved by City Council on April 7, 2022 and will be active for approximately twelve months.
