The Town of Duck, North Carolina,  is currently developing a Comprehensive Pedestrian Plan to improve pedestrian safety and access throughout the Town and within the Village Center.  As we pursue our goal to become a Pedestrian-First Community, we would like to know how you and your family use the existing pedestrian network and where you think we should enhance it.  Your involvement in the planning process is essential to the success of the project.

Public Meeting:

The second public meeting  for the comprehensive pedestrian plan was held on Monday, October 21, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. in the Duck Town Hall Meeting Room located at 1200 Duck Road, Duck, NC 27949.  Approximately 47 people were in attendance.  The project team presented the draft recommendations for the study.  Click here for the agenda.  Comments on the draft recommendations can be sent to cdewitt@vhb.com. The draft recommendations can be viewed on the following page.

The first public meeting was held in July.  62 people were in attendance for the interactive meeting.  The goals of the study, the process and preliminary survey results were presented.   Presentation slides presented during the meeting are available here.  Please note, that results from an interactive survey of meeting attendees appears on the presentation slides.  View a video of the meeting here.

Track Your Path and help us gather additional data!  Download VHB BikeWays and use your iPhone or Android’s GPS support to track trip routes.  It’s simple to use: tap START to start recording your trip, SAVE at the end, and specify a purpose (commuting, shopping, exercise, etc.).  Data representing the purpose, route, date and time are sent to VHB’s servers.  Think of it as a travel survey that asks you why and where you are riding, but automatically maps your route rather than asking you to write it down from memory.
