The Wake Forest Comprehensive Transportation Plan accomplished several objectives and innovations in 2019:

  • Consolidate and update four major planning documents that cover transportation, greenways, walking, and biking.

  • Create a new type of accessible plan that is designed to be read and explored, including interactive on-line content.

  • Develop concept designs for "hot spots" around town.

  • Revisit key policies embedded in the Town's ordinance; state-level initiatives; and acknowledge the impact of technology on how we move in, to, and around Wake Forest.
