We, the citizens of Pitt County, petition the city of Greenville to include a connected system of sidewalks and bike lanes as part of the Evans Street widening project.
The primary purpose of this petition is to support the addition of sidewalks and bike lanes as part of the Evans Street widening project. Provision of these amenities provides a safe environment that encourages physical activity and promotes community health.
There has understandably been opposition to this addition from adjacent neighborhoods as it may possibly encroach upon entryways and landmarks. However, the NCDOT has provided budgeted funds for the replacement of the aforementioned features.
The inclusion of sidewalks and bike lanes in the Evans Street widening project and budgeted replacement of entryways/ landmarks constitutes a win-win for the entire community.
