Downtown Development


Welcome to Downtown Wake Forest

In October 2012, Wake Forest Downtown, Inc. (WFD) officially joined the Town of Wake Forest as the Department of Downtown Development. The move came after the Board of Commissioners agreed to bring the executive director position of WFD in-house at the request of the organization's board of directors.

Under the arrangement, Downtown Development/WFD headquarters are located on the first floor of Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St. WFD's Board of Directors continue in its current capacity as a 501(c)(3) organization.
