Upcoming Public Hearing
A draft of the Walkertown Area Plan Update [pdf/6.2mb/59p] is now complete, as is a presentation on the plan [pdf/6.1mb/24p]. The Walkertown Planning Board recommended approval of the draft plan on February 4, 2014, and the plan was adopted by the Walkertown Town Council on March 27, 2014. The City-County Planning Board recommended approval on April 10, 2014. The Forsyth County Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on the plan this spring. Once adopted, the plan will guide future land use and public investment decisions in Walkertown and the surrounding area. It includes recommendations for land use, transportation, community facilities, historic preservation, and economic development.
The Existing Conditions Report [pdf/2.6mb/26p] is a summary of the Walkertown Planning Area's demographic and land use trends over the last ten years. It includes current and proposed street and highway improvements, housing statistics, environmental features, and a list of historic structures, as well as several maps of the area.
