Walk Hendo Pedestrian Plan

Walk Hendo! City of Hendersonville Seeking Community Input for New Pedestrian Plan

Hendersonville, NC (July 5, 2022) - Hendersonville is embarking on a journey to update the City’s Pedestrian Plan and the steering committee wants to hear from everyone who lives, works in or visits Hendersonville! ‘Walk Hendo’ is a new effort to identify the community’s vision, strategies, goals, and recommended actions to make the City more pedestrian-friendly and walkable for all. 

On July 25, and throughout the month of August, the City of Hendersonville will be hosting community engagement activities. A drop-in-style public meeting will be hosted on July 25 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m., where anyone can share their thoughts about walking and moving throughout the City. An online survey will be launched that same day and will run throughout August to collect similar feedback. 

The community’s 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 projects are constructed, make policy choices, build programs and events, and apply for new types of funding.  

Walk Hendo was made possible with a grant from the North Carolina Department of Transportation and a financial match from the City of Hendersonville. The project is being led by Asheville-based transportation consulting firm Traffic Planning & Design.
