A resident takes a survey about the future of Wake County

Wake County is growing rapidly, and PLANWake charts a course to guide growth over the next 10 years. In cooperation with the 13 municipalities in the county, PLANWake recommends an intentional growth framework and identifies areas of the county optimal for new development in the short term. PLANWake's vision is to create a county that is inclusive and equitable, healthy and active, and sustainable and vibrant. 

On March 3rd, the Planning Board recommended the Board of Commissioners approve the plan. You can view the presentation from that meeting here

The plan was adopted by the Wake County Board of Commissioners on April 5, 2021. You can find presentations and the plan document on the PLANWake project site at
