The Hope Mills Area Multimodal Congestion Management Plan is a joint effort between the Fayetteville Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (FAMPO) and the Town of Hope Mills. The objectives and requirements as set forth in a defined scope of work are to be used as guidance for the study area.
FAMPO has identified the Town of Hope Mills as an area in need of a Comprehensive, Multimodal Congestion Management Plan.
This area is ideal for development to occur and is expected to be in high demand because of future growth in the region caused from the creation of the Fayetteville Outer Loop (I-295), which will be fully completed by 2021.
As of 2010, the Town of Hope Mills had a population of 15,176, which is expected to grow in the foreseeable future. This continued growth is expected to have a significant, and potentially negative, impact on the transportation network and land-use patterns of the study area. Increase in traffic volumes, development activities, congestion and population are all expected in the region.
To prepare a sub-regional multi-modal congestion management transportation plan and a companion land use plan suitable for implementation by local governments, FAMPO, public transportation providers and NCDOT that:
The Town of Hope Mills is located in western Cumberland County, just south of the City of Fayetteville.
The study area, a seven square mile area shown in the map, encompasses the entire town limits.
