INVENTORY OF EXISTING CONDITIONS REPORT

December 11, 2017

This Inventory of Existing Conditions Report represents the first step in the planning process. This report provides background information necessary to effectively plan for transportation improvements in the county. It provides information on the roadway network, demographics, transit service, and development patterns. This report will be followed by a Needs Assessment Report, which details specific transportation needs that will be addressed through recommended projects.

ASSESSMENT OF CURRENT AND FUTURE NEEDS

January 02, 2018

The Needs Assessment provides an analysis of the Forsyth County transportation network’s ability to meet community transportation needs now and in the future. Future needs are determined based on the ability of existing and planned infrastructure and services to meet forecasted demands. Multiple data sources are used to help identify needs: geographic information systems (GIS), regional travel demand model, global positioning system (GPS) data, land use, US Census, existing plans, public input, and more.

COMMITTEE MEETINGS

TECHNICAL AND STAKEHOLDER COMMITTEES

November 30, 2017

Two committees have been formed to help guide the planning process and provide input: a Stakeholder Advisory Committee (SAC) and Technical Advisory Committee (TAC). The committees will allow the County to build partnerships and share information between County departments; state, regional and local staff; major stakeholders; and community representatives. The committees will provide a continuing forum of education, exchange, understanding, questioning and clarification. By meeting at key project milestones, the committees will also serve as a feedback loop to plan development in terms of support and consensus and meeting the diverse needs of a broad-based constituency.
