The West Suburban Area Plan was adopted by the Winston-Salem City Council and the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners in 2012 and is in the process of being updated.

A public hearing on the updated plan before the City-County Planning Board is scheduled Thursday, April 12, 2018, beginning at 4:30 p.m. in the 5th floor public meeting room in the Bryce A. Stuart Municipal Building located at 100 E. First Street.  At the public hearing, the Planning Board will consider recommending the West Suburban Area Plan Update to the Winston-Salem City Council and the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners. Planning Staff will make a brief presentation about the draft plan update before interested citizens speak on the draft plan. All interested citizens are invited to attend the meeting and share their comments regarding the plan during the public hearing. A PDF copy of the draft West Suburban Area Plan Update is located above under documents.

On February 20, 2018, a drop-in meeting was held for citizens to comment individually on the initial draft of the West Suburban Area Plan Update.  The draft plan includes recommendations related to land use, transportation, community facilities, historic resources and design. On January 23, 2018, a third citizen meeting was held where transportation recommendations (including sidewalks and bike lanes), community facilities recommendations (including parks and greenways), and historic resources recommendations were presented for citizen review and comment. A summary of area land use recommendations concluded the meeting. On December 5, 2017, a second citizen meeting was held where land use recommendations for the planning area were presented by staff for review and comment by citizens.  On October 24, 2017, a kickoff meeting was held where an existing conditions report was given that covered demographics, existing land use, transportation features, and housing statistics, among other topics.  All meetings were held at the Mt. Tabor High School Media Center, 342 Petree Road, Winston-Salem, NC  27106.
