Physical Activity & the Built Environment Policy Initiative Grant
OPI and the City of Wilmington Transportation Division were awarded a Physical Activity in the Built Environment Policy Initiative Grant from the NC Dept. of Health & Human Services (RFA # A-211). This $25,000 project will identify NCDOT policies that are in conflict with City of Wilmington policies and are as a result impeding progress towards the installation of bicycle and pedestrian facilities. We will analyze data from the standpoint of Wilmington and then work with DHHS to convey the results to NCDOT and hopefully achieve policy changes at the state level. Funded July 2010-Dec. 2011.
