Sidewalk Petition Projects

New sidewalk projects on local residential streets are typically handled through a petition process by the residents along the street. The petition program for a new sidewalk requires signatures from a majority of the property owners along the street that make up the majority of the property frontage.

Adopted Comprehensive Pedestrian Plan

The Comprehensive Pedestrian Plan was adopted by City Council on January 2nd, 2013. The Pedestrian Plan provides strategies for enhancing Raleigh's transportation system to promote walkability throughout the City. The plan assesses the existing facilities, policies, plans, and programs that affect pedestrian mobility and provides recommendations for improvements. The plan includes templates for pedestrian infrastructure improvements, examples of tools and techniques for improving walkability, and a prioritized list of over 200 proposed sidewalk projects throughout the City.
