Call For Community Input On "MLK Drive Corridor"

 


WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — All interested property owners, residents, and community members are invited to attend one of two meetings focusing on gathering community input into the design of the Martin Luther King Jr. Drive corridor from U.S. 52 to Business 40.

    Hosted by the S.G. Atkins Community Development Corporation (CDC), the meetings will be held on Thursday, Feb. 10, from 6 to 8 p.m. at United Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church and Tuesday, Feb. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Anderson Center on the campus of Winston-Salem State University (WSSU).

    “The S.G. Atkins CDC is leading this effort to advance the implementation of the recently completed plan for the MLK Jr. Dr. corridor.  These meetings offer the community an opportunity to provide input into the development of a zoning district with design regulations that would guide future growth and development along the corridor,” said Carol Davis, executive director of the CDC.  “We encourage people to attend and add their ideas and insights to this important planning process.”

    The MLK Jr. Dr. corridor sits in a strategic position between downtown Winston-Salem and WSSU. Improvements planned for U.S. 52/Future I-74 and Business 40 make this corridor a prime location for development.
