Bike/pedestrian paths, sidewalks & greenways

Construction costs of sidewalks, paths, and greenways are either shared between NCDOT and the village (if part of a larger NCDOT road project, the village pays 20% of the cost) or are the sole responsibility of the village. All maintenance costs are the responsibility of the village or of the abutting property owner(s).
