Monday, April 25 - Thursday, April 28
Wake Forest Town Hall, Ground Floor Meeting Room, 301 S. Brooks St.

The Downtown Design team is inviting Wake Forest residents to offer continual input and monitor the work-in-progress. Members of the community and all those interested in the future of the downtown area are invited to stop by town hall to participate in a series of meetings to share feedback on a variety of downtown-related topics. The design team will be on hand to meet with citizens, answer questions, and further refine ideas. Citizens are welcome to attend any and all of these meetings. 

These meetings will take place in the Wake Forest Town Hall's ground floor meeting room which is most easily accessed via the building's Taylor Street entrance.

For more information, contact Planning Director Chip Russell.
