2035 Community Vision Land Use Plan Charrette
What will Fuquay-Varina look like in the year 2035? If the past 20 years are any indication, it may look very different than it does today. Over the past 20 years, the Town of Fuquay-Varina’s population has grown from approximately 6,500 to an estimated 25,000 people, making it one of the fastest growing towns in North Carolina.
In order to direct planning and engage the community, the Town is creating the 2035 Community Vision Land Use Plan with City Explained, Inc., a consulting firm experienced in helping local, regional and state government officials manage public policy planning issues. When adopted, the 2035 Community Vision Land Use Plan will guide and shape the Town for the next 20 years.
A major focus of this visioning process is to gather input and actively engage the community, to allow residents, business owners and stakeholders to have a voice in how the Town manages future growth through development of this plan. A public workshop was held in early October to kick-off the planning process. Beginning October 31st, the Town will hold a week-long series of meetings, called a charrette, at the Public Service Center located at 1415 Holland Road, Fuquay-Varina, NC. The public is invited to attend any or all of the meetings that are designed to address both general community planning concerns, as well as specific topics ranging from transportation to economic vitality. Meetings will be held daily from Oct. 31-Nov. 4. Please visit http://www.fuquay-varina.org/713/Land-Use-Plan for a schedule of daily meeting topics and times.
The goal of the week-long charrette is to allow the community and Town Staff to work through planning issues, address varying viewpoints and promote joint ownership of solutions which will be used to guide development of the new land use plan. Working together, we can build a play book for our future, which will result in the 2035 Community Vision Land Use Plan.
