The Legacy Development Guide
The Legacy Development Guide (often called the "Legacy Plan", summary here) is a comprehensive plan that guides development in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. The plan is the result of an on-going joint effort between the City-County Planning Board and a Citizens Steering Committee (the Legacy Oversight Committee). A public meeting seeking community input for updating the plan was held on April 26 at the new Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts. A legal spin on the topic is that such plans are required by state law and planners and public officials are required to follow the dictates of the plan in making land-use decisions.
