Planning & Development Services Department - Nov. 27, 2018
Residents can provide their thoughts on how to improve downtown Winston-Salem at two public input sessions to be held Tuesday, Dec. 4. All residents are invited to participate, not just people who live or work downtown.
A lunchtime drop-in session will be held from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at Footnote, 634 W. Fourth Street, behind Foothills Brewing. Parking is available behind the building, off Holly Avenue.
At 6 p.m. a design charrette will be held at the Winston-Salem Urban League, 201 W. Fifth St. The charrette will open with a short presentation, after which attendees will participate in an exercise to design different types of downtown streets.
The public input sessions will help guide a new master plan for such items as trees, lighting, curbside parking and other elements that make up the downtown "streetscape."
Residents who cannot attend the sessions can provide their input by taking a short online survey. The survey is posted at CityofWS.org/DTStreetscape and allows participants to use a map to indicate specific locations where they think downtown improvements are needed.
The survey will be posted through Dec. 15. For more information about the streetscape master plan, go to CityofWS.org/DTStreetscape.
