Winston-Salem Downtown Plan

Adopted 2013

The Winston-Salem Downtown Plan (PDF) was adopted by City Council and the City-County Planning Board in 2013. The plan was developed by the Downtown Winston-Salem Partnership, City-County Planning Department staff, and representatives of downtown stakeholders. It will guide future public policy decisions and includes recommendations for several districts, such as the Arts District, Theater District, Twin City Quarter, and the Wake Forest Innovation Quarter, in addition to the topical areas of economic investment, vibrancy, mobility, and public investment.
