Walk Zebulon

The Town of Zebulon adopted a Strategic Plan, Zebulon 2030, in 2018. This plan identified three focus areas:

  • Vibrant Downtown,
  • Small Town Life,
  • and Growing Smart.

To support these focus areas, priority goals were determined. "Increasing the connectedness and walkability in the community" is one of these goals.
