              In 2030, the Town of Huntersville envisions a
          transportation system that supports the multi-modal
            travel demand of its residents, while reinforcing a
            sustainable land use pattern that focuses higher
          intensity development generally within two miles of I-
              77 and at identified mixed-use village centers.
            Vehicles (including mass transit), pedestrians and
          bicyclists will be accommodated within an integrated
            transportation system that provides connectivity
                 between commercial and residential uses.
            Transportation policies will support these goals
               and include a prioritized capital improvement
           program for both the maintenance of existing travel
            routes and the development of new ones. Finally,
                the transportation system will incorporate
            appropriate landscaping, lighting and pedestrian
            safety features to reinforce and complement the
             Town’s desired land use development pattern.

12.0 Pedestrian & Bicycle Circulation

It is the policy of the Town of
Huntersville that pedestrians and
bicyclists be accommodated in addition to
automobiles and other forms of motorized
transportation. As previously noted, with
certain exceptions, sidewalks are required
on all new (public) streets as well as along
the frontage of existing streets where
redevelopment occurs. As the community
grows, relatively short block lengths and
high levels of connectivity afford many
pedestrian routes and fairly direct
connections to activity centers.
                                               Intentional bicycle accommodations (wide

13.0 Greenways and Bikeways

Greenway trails consistently rank high on
the list of amenities that the public would
like to see to enhance mobility options. In
2007, the Town of Huntersville adopted a
“Greenway and Bikeway Master Plan”.
This plan included an overview of
greenways, trails and bikeways, an
inventory and analysis of these facilities, as
well as an action plan and including
implementation strategies. Appendix _
