Yadkinville to present draft comprehensive plan

Staff Report

Over the past several months, the town of Yadkinville’s Long Range Planning Committee has worked with consultant Benchmark Planning to craft a vision, goals and strategies for the town’s Comprehensive Plan. The plan’s recommendations will be presented at a public meeting at Town Hall on May 10 at 6 p.m.

The background report, public input summary, and draft vision and goals for the plan can be viewed on the town’s website at www.yadkinville.org.

Since August of 2016, Yadkinville has been working to complete a Comprehensive Plan to guide the future of the town. Last fall, the town held a public workshop and conducted a survey that had more than 300 participants. Survey respondents expressed a desire to have a vibrant downtown, town-wide revitalization, and additional shops and restaurants while retaining its small-town charm. Workshop attendees placed emphasis on the need for economic development and downtown revitalization.

Based on the background report and public input summary, the draft plan focuses on a future in which the town of Yadkinville has a vibrant downtown, steady and managed growth, a diverse economy, and quality housing availability for all ages. Example recommendations include improved development and maintenance standards, streetscape enhancements, pedestrian improvements, infill development, downtown façade improvements, and economic development initiatives.
