Kickoff Meeting - December 4, 2014
Planning staff will be working with citizens on the Southwest Suburban Area Plan Update to reflect changes that have occurred in the area since 2009, and to guide development in the next decade. Citizens who live or work in the area are invited to attend the plan's public kickoff meeting [pdf/500kb/1p] on December 4, 2014, at 6:00 p.m., at the Little Creek Recreation Center, 610 Foxcroft Drive, Winston-Salem. Citizens will have the opportunity to share their thoughts and ideas about the future of the area regarding land use and development, transportation, and community facilities. Subsequent meetings will also be held at 6:00 p.m. at the Little Creek Recreation Center and are scheduled for January 6, February 3, and March 3, 2015.
The plan's Existing Conditions Report [pdf/2mb/32p] summarizes demographic and land use trends since the last plan was adopted, and includes current and proposed street and highway improvements, community facilities, environmental features, historic resources, and several maps of the area. The current Southwest Suburban Area Plan [pdf/14.9mb/92p], was adopted by the Winston-Salem City Council and the City-County Planning Board in 2008. The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners adopted the plan in January 2009.
The Southwest Suburban Planning Area [pdf/890kb/1p] encompasses 13,292 acres of land and is bounded on the north by Business 40 and Silas Creek Parkway, on the east by Ebert Road, on the south by the county boundary, and on the west by Muddy Creek. Approximately 60 percent of the area is in Winston-Salem; the remainder is in unincorporated Forsyth County.
