The Town of Mount Pleasant recently completed the Mount Pleasant Way Master Plan project (MPW), which developed a proposed network of connected multi-use paths intended for non-motorized users that will link key portions of the Town. In order to support further efforts to expand mobility options and decrease automobile congestion, the Town is establishing new guidance for accommodating micromobility and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) in the Town.
Micromobility is defined as small, fully or partially human-powered vehicles. These vehicles may include bicycles, scooters, skateboards, roller skates, self-balancing vehicles or other wheeled devices. NEVs are larger and heavier than most micromobility vehicles. Typical NEVs include golf carts and autonomous low-speed shuttles.
Interested in Micromobility on Your Street?
The Town of Mount Pleasant is soliciting qualified neighborhoods for micromobility pilot projects. The Town is generally looking for (1) streets that do not have pedestrian facilities and (2) streets that serve as the primary ingress/egress of the neighborhood. Any candidate street will need a supportive general consensus of the neighborhood, exhibited through a grass-roots petition effort. The Town will ultimately determine if your street is a feasible candidate for a project pilot.
