Midtown - St. Albans Visioning Survey

Thanks for taking the time to participate in the Midtown-St. Albans Area Plan process! This planning effort is just getting underway, and we'd like to better understand your vision for the area, which is outlined in blue in the map below. For reference, the map also highlights two related planning efforts, the Six Forks Road and Capital Boulevard North corridor plans.

What do you think are the issues that need to be addressed? What are the opportunities for improvements that should not be missed? This survey includes a few quick questions to help us begin to have a conversation about the future of this part of Raleigh. The planning process will continue throughout 2018 and into 2019, so there will be additional opportunities for input along the way, including some surveys that will ask much more detailed questions. Please follow along as this planning process unfolds!
