Welcome to the High Point Regional Bicycle Plan website. The High Point Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (HPMPO) is working to create safe and connected routes for bicycling in the High Point region, covering nearly 700 square miles in west-central North Carolina. This plan aims to use bicycling as a tool for improving mobility, safety, health, economy, environment, and overall quality of life.

ABOUT THIS PLAN

The purpose of this plan is to identify opportunities and constraints for bicycling in the High Point region, and to establish recommendations for improvement. Recommendations will come in the form of a map of proposed improvements, such as bike lanes and greenway trails, along with a planning report that provides project details, program ideas, policy recommendations, and implementation action steps.

The High Point Urban Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (HPMPO) is leading the process, with a study area that includes eight municipalities, parts of four different counties, and three different divisions of NCDOT.

+ The Planning Process

The development of this plan includes a public process, featuring input from a steering committee, and input from the public through this project website, an interactive on-line map, a public comment form, outreach booths, and public presentations.
