Transportation Plan public meetings set for Wednesday

Town of Wake Forest News

The Town of Wake Forest will offer area residents two opportunities to share their transportation-related issues and concerns on Wednesday, May 23. As part of the process of developing the 2018 Comprehensive Transportation Plan, the Town will host back-to-back public meetings at the Wake Forest Historical Museum, 414 N. Main St. Scheduled from 4-5:30 p.m. and 5:30-7 p.m., the two sessions will have identical formats, so area residents have the option of attending at the time they prefer.

Both will include interactive presentations that encourage attendees to identify and discuss transportation challenges and concerns in Wake Forest. Following the presentations, participants will be invited to visit several workstations where they can share their ideas and opinions on a variety of topics, including safety, intersections, roadway congestion, technology, walking, biking and transit.

Community input is the cornerstone of the 2018 Comprehensive Transportation Plan, which will address all modes of transportation, including driving, walking, biking and transit. Area residents are encouraged to attend one of the two sessions on May 23 to offer their feedback. Each meeting will last approximately 90 minutes and allow attendees to view anonymously what their neighbors think about transportation issues, then break into smaller groups to focus the conversation on topics of greatest concern.

In addition to attending one of the May 23 public meetings, community members are also encouraged to complete an online survey. Designed to help direct the Town’s transportation planning efforts, the survey is available through Saturday, May 26, and takes approximately five minutes to complete. To complete the survey, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/2018-comprehensive-transportation-plan.aspx.
