Plan Status - Update in Progress
Planning staff will be working with citizens on updating the North Central Winston-Salem Area Plan to reflect changes that have occurred in the community over the last seven years and to guide development in the area over the next decade. Residents and those who work in the area are invited to attend the plan's public kickoff meeting on Tuesday, September 16, 2014, from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center, 2001 Pittsburg Avenue, Winston-Salem. Citizens will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas about the future of the area as they relate to land use and development, transportation, and community facilities.
The current North Central Winston-Salem Area Plan [pdf/2.6mb/96p] was adopted by City Council and the City-County Planning Board in 2007. The plan was prepared by the North Central Area Citizens' Advisory Committee and City-County Planning Department staff. The plan will guide future land use and public investment decisions and includes recommendations for land use, transportation, community facilities, community development and housing, design and appearance, historic preservation, and economic development.
Boundaries of the Planning Area
The North Central Planning Area [pdf/300kb/1p] encompasses approximately 2,000 acres and is bounded on the north by Reynolds Boulevard and Akron Drive; on the east by US 52; on the south by Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, Eighth Street, and the Southern Railway; and on the west by the Old Town Country Club. The planning area is in four city council wards. Approximately one-half the planning area is in the North Ward, approximately one-third is in the Northeast Ward, and the balance is in the East and Northwest Wards.
