Representatives of the City-County Planning Board and staff will hold meetings on Tuesday, April 26, to kick-off public participation in the process of updating the Legacy Comprehensive Plan.
Each meeting will include a mix of presentations and activities designed to illustrate the issues that will affect Winston-Salem and Forsyth County over the next 20 years, including "Lego-cy," an eye-catching use of Lego building bricks to illustrate the impact of population growth in Forsyth County.
By 2030, demographers predict that the county population will have grown by 120,000 people or more, to at least 450,000.
However, the county only has 62,000 acres of open land that is viable for development. The Legacy 2030 update is intended to help our community plan now for this influx of people, while also ensuring there is space for commercial and industrial growth, recreation, schools, and other uses.
Two sessions will be held, one at 2 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m. Both sessions will be held in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, 251 N. Spruce Street.
