In the 2011 results of its 10th Anniversary Digital Cities Survey, the Center for Digital Government found Winston-Salem to be the 2nd most digitalized for cities with a population between 125,000 and 249,000. According to their website, "[t]he survey focused on results achieved by cities, via the use of technology, in operating efficiencies and realizing strategic objectives despite current fiscal constraints."
Rana Loca, the popular 4th Street restaurant, will be closing; its owners will be opening Encore! in the same space with a menu catering to a wider, more American taste.
Finally, work on Building 91 of Piedmont Triad Research Park has been completed and will open next month as Wake Forest Biotech Place. Pictures of the renovations can be found here.

The City Council voted unanimously to approve $180,000 to finish the Brushy Fork Greenway which will connect Winston Lake with Salem Lake and its existing 12-mile greenway. The real beauty of the deal is that the greenway is expected to cost $1.2 million so the approval of the funds leverages over a $1 million in state transportation funds.
The City Council also approved $600,000 to spend on parks around the city including a new boathouse and pier at Salem Lake.
