Matthews, NC – People who walk, bike, or drive through Downtown Matthews are asked to provide their feedback as part of a town wide study of downtown parking and mobility. 

The Downtown Matthews Mobility Study will evaluate the needs of people walking, biking, taking transit, driving, and parking in Downtown Matthews in order to develop a clear vision for the future of traveling to, from, and around downtown. The study will also evaluate how to better connect residential neighborhoods surrounding downtown. 

The study kicked off earlier this month with a stakeholder meeting, and an analysis of existing conditions has begun. During this analysis period, there is an opportunity for public input. Citizens are asked to complete a brief survey and provide input through an online mapping tool. 

Survey:
This brief survey seeks to gather your input on how you travel to, from, and around Downtown Matthews, and what you would like to see to make getting to, from, and around downtown better.

Public Input Map:
Use this mapping tool to show us where you'd like to see new or improved: sidewalks, bike facilities, greenways and multi-use paths, transit routes, roadway connections, parking improvements, or drop-off locations to help you get into town more easily.

Community Meetings:
Public Kick-off Meeting: Wednesday, May 29 6:00 - 8:00 p.m at Matthews Town Hall
Work-In-Progress Review: Thursday, May 30 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. at Matthews Town Hall and streaming live on Facebook
Open Studio - Public Drop-in: May 29 (12PM-1:00PM), May 30 (9AM-5PM), May 31 (9AM-1PM)
The Open Studio is a workshop setting where the public can observe the development of the plan and its recommendations. 

Once the work is completed, the final Downtown Mobility Plan will be developed and presented to the Board of Commissioners for their approval. 

The Town of Matthews has hired Alta Planning and Design to complete the study. It is being funded through a grant received from the Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) who is responsible for 80 percent of the total cost, and the Town of Matthews is funding 20 percent.
