Since the 1970s, the Town has committed to improving its walkability, bikeability, sidewalks, bike facilities, and greenways.
Vision Statement and Strategies of Carrboro Connects:
All people in Carrboro, of all races and backgrounds, will have safe and equitable access to recreational and cultural opportunities, including a connected network of parks, green space, and trails.
Continue to create safe streets and trail networks for pedestrians, bike riders, and transit riders (Transportation & Mobility, Chapter 5, Strategy 2.2).
Encourage and support the development of greenways and trails for public use, creating a complete network of connected greenways connecting parks, open spaces and conservation areas for biking, walking, and wildlife corridors (Recreation, Parks &Culture, Chapter 8, Strategy 2.5).
