Consultation has concluded

The Renaissance Plan for Downtown Wake Forest was adopted in September 2017. With the update and adoption of several comprehensive plans, including the 2022 Community Plan and 2021 Northeast Community Plan, as well as development occurring in the current Renaissance Plan area, the Plan needs to be updated.

Along with the update, the name is changing from Renaissance Plan for Downtown Wake Forest to Wake Forest Downtown Plan which will allow residents and visitors a more intuitive description of the Plan focus area.

The Wake Forest Downtown Plan will be a blueprint for the future with a focus on Wake Forest’s Downtown commercial center.


Community Input 

The Plan will be driven by the community input and will result in a set of policies that direct future growth and development. This Plan will help effectively guide community leaders as they make substantive and thoughtful decisions for the project study area.

Visioning Workshops | Wednesday, Nov. 8 | 11 a.m. & 6:30 p.m.

Area residents and downtown merchants are invited to attend one of two visioning workshops on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at Wake Forest Fire Station #1, 420 Elm Ave., to learn more and share their thoughts and opinions on such topics as development and redevelopment, vehicular connections, pedestrian and bicycle connections, streetscape and urban design, green space and gathering space, and placemaking.

Programmed (not drop-in) sessions will be offered from 11 a.m.- 1 p.m. and 6:30-8:30 p.m.
