What is the Middle Creek Area Plan?
The Middle Creek (MC) Area Plan is a component of Wake County’s new comprehensive plan, PLANWake, adopted in April 2021. The area plans separate the county into six distinct areas for more localized planning with community input. The MC Area Plan will be the second area to undergo the process of determining what type of built environment – the homes, buildings, streets, open spaces, farms, and infrastructure – is envisioned for the future at the local level.
If you live in this community (or even if you don't!) and want to help shape it for the future, you're invited to participate. Wake County staff needs to hear from you as the Middle Creek Area Plan is drafted over the next several months.
Input and participation from our diverse population are vital for any planning process to be considered successful. Insight from those who live, work and play in this area will drive planning projects that are developed with the specific community’s needs and desires, as well as their vision for the future, in mind. Share experiences, preferences and other feedback to help us why you love where you live and what you’d like to see more of.
