OAK RIDGE - A hearing to gain public input on the town's draft pedestrian plan is scheduled for Thursday, July 25, during the Planning and Zoning Board meeting.

The meeting, which begins at 7 p.m., will be held at Town Hall on Linville Road.

Oak Ridge was awarded a $20,000 grant from the N.C. Department of Transportation in May 2011 to develop a plan for making the town more pedestrian friendly.

A pedestrian steering committee was created several months later, and in March 2012 the committee began work on developing a detailed, prioritized plan for sidewalks and improvements.

If the draft plan receives a recommendation from the planning board, it will go before the town council for final approval at its Aug. 1 meeting.
