1.2 Key Goals
Connect the Core
Wake Forest has two major centers of energy: the historic core along White Street and the Renaissance Plaza Shopping Center. They are currently operating independently; we must connect them. Ultimately, we need a continuous, high quality, and vibrant pedestrian environment from White Street to the Renaissance Plaza Shopping Center.
Manage the Cars
Downtown has plenty of parking spaces. A detailed analysis of both private, public and on-street parking spaces was conducted. A total of 1,649 parking spaces were counted within the downtown core. Traditionally, this quantity should support well over half a million square feet of mixed use development. However, enhancing management of the public parking, encouraging shared parking strategies with private lots as well as improving signage and awareness will help the existing parking spaces work more efficiently for all of the user groups in downtown.
