Wake County Releases Draft Comprehensive Plan for Review

For the past two years, Wake County planners dug into data, listened to community comments, and engaged stakeholders, partners and advisory boards to shape a comprehensive plan that will guide future growth. Now, the draft plan — known as PLANWake — is ready for residents to review.

“This is about the future of Wake County,” said Greg Ford, chairman of the Wake County Board of Commissioners. “Public input is critical to the success of a comprehensive plan, and this is your opportunity provide feedback about the direction it takes.”

The county launched the PLANWake process in September 2018. It included three rounds of community surveys, which garnered more than 150,000 responses. Residents weighed in on a broad array of topics, including land use and development, parks and open space, housing and neighborhoods, transportation options, economic opportunity, public services and facilities, and others.

The draft plan is the result of that research and collaboration — and Wake County needs community input to make sure we got it right. How can you help?

When complete, the plan will include high-level policies that help guide decisions and actions addressing critical issues over the coming decades. Make sure your voice is heard. The survey will be open through the end of January 2021.
