Each year the Town Council establishes a priority list of locations for annual sidewalk projects that have been requested by citizens and the Police Department. The annual sidewalk priority list considers a number of factors including safety, use, need and constructability. Click to view the Town of Cary sidewalk project list. You may also view the Town's Comprehensive Pedestrian Plan.

Requests for sidewalks must be accompanied by a petition signed by at least 70 percent of homeowners within the "area of influence" as noted in the Sidewalk Requests (Town's Policy Statement No.135). The Planning Department will provide a map and addresses for the area of influence.

Community Investment Bonds
In November 2012, Cary residents voted to approve the purchase of Community Investment Bonds for Transportation. The bonds were supported by 70% of voters and included $750,000 for sidewalk construction. For more detail view the Community Investment Bond Ped/Bike Map.
