Your voice is an important part of the Charlotte WALKS plan!
Over the past 18 months, city staff led a series of public meetings to find out what walkability means to Charlotteans. We spoke to over 1000 people at 25 different events. Those conversations have been rolled into the preliminary draft of the Charlotte WALKS Pedestrian Plan.
