Town of Davidson Announces More Events for the Davidson Mobility Plan

by | May 16, 2018 | Town Information

DAVIDSON, N.CThe Town of Davidson is continuing the creation of its Davidson Mobility Plan, a community-driven effort to look at innovative solutions, projects, and programs to help residents move in town via foot, bike, car, and transit, and address congestion. The Davidson Mobility Plan will also serve as a Comprehensive Transportation Plan (CTP) that will enable the town to seek funding for projects to help the town manage, sustain, and improve the town’s transportation infrastructure. Town staff is working with consultant Alta Planning + Design to develop the plan. We encourage the community to participate.
