Walk Hendo invites public input on pedestrian plan

The city's Walk Hendo Steering Committee will host a drop-in public meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 2, during which anyone who lives in, works in or visits Hendersonville can share their thoughts about the proposed set of pedestrian projects.

The drop-in meeting is at the City Operations Center Assembly Room, 305 Williams St.  An online survey will also go live that day and run throughout the month to collect input.

The Walk Hendo Steering Committee developed the set of pedestrian infrastructure projects out of last summer’s community input sessions in collaboration with the transportation consulting firm Traffic Planning & Design.

Walk Hendo is Hendersonville’s pedestrian planning process to identify the community’s vision, strategies, goals and recommended actions for creating safe places to walk. The project began in the spring of 2022 and is expected to be completed in the late summer or early fall of this year.

The public input will be used to further develop the Walk Hendo Pedestrian Plan. Once the plan is adopted, the city and North Carolina Department of Transportation can use it to make policy choices, design programs and events, and apply for new types of funding.

Walk Hendo is made possible through a grant from NCDOT and led by Asheville-based consulting firm Traffic Planning & Design. For more information contact Rachael Bronson at or 828.575.0133 or visit
