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. 

Development Framework Map

The plan was adopted by the Wake County Board of Commissioners on April 5, 2021. Below are the key documents created during the PLANWake process. This page will be updated as the county takes steps to implement the recommendations of PLANWake. For more information, please contact us at
