High Country Council of Governments is developing a bike plan for Yancey, Mitchell, Avery, Watauga, Ashe, Alleghany, and Wilkes Counties. The Plan is intended to improve safety, access, and mobility for cyclists by developing a network of designated routes that connect municipalities and other major destinations in the region.
The Plan will identify needed improvements to existing roadways, prioritize the improvements, and develop a signage plan to mark the identified routes. As part of the planning process, a citizen survey has been developed to gather input on current cycling use, challenges, and desired improvements. The survey consists of 23 questions, and is geared towards cyclists and non-cyclists alike.
The survey is available online through Survey Monkey. The website address is:
The survey will be available online through May 4, 2012. Please take the approximately 10-12 minutes to complete the survey. If you have any questions about the survey, contact High Country Council of Governments at 828-265-5434.
The High Country Council of Governments is a voluntary association of the seven Counties and 19 Towns located in the northern mountains of North Carolina. The Council is one of 16 multi-county planning regions in the state and serves as a cooperative extension of local governments. The agency was established in 1974 by the member governments as provided for in NC General Statutes.
