The project logo Midtown: From Ideas to Action

The Midtown-St. Albans area plan is focused on making Midtown an even better place as it grows and evolves. This survey is designed to help us prioritize proposed improvements for the area, including projects focused on walkability, traffic, stormwater, public spaces, and more.

The questions below reference proposals summarized in the Midtown-St. Albans Options. After reviewing the proposals, this survey should take about five minutes to complete. Thank you for your time!

For this exercise, we have assigned each project a relative price and marked the cost with dollar signs ($) on the options report and in the response boxes below. To keep things simple, let's say that each $ equals one dollar and that you have $25 total dollars ("Midtown Bucks") to spend on upcoming Midtown projects. Move the projects to the top until you run out of money. Any responses over $25 will not be counted. For more information about these options, please refer to the Midtown-St. Albans Improvements document linked in the description above.
Do you have any comments on these recommendations?


The Midtown plan is focused on transportation and other infrastructure improvements. However, it also contains recommendations for land use in a few key areas in addition to those noted above. The intent of those recommendations, which you may have seen in a previous survey, is to provide housing and employment opportunities in key areas where new infrastructure is proposed and to specify the height, scale, and transitions of buildings. View more information about those recommendations.

Do you have comments on those recommendations?
In a previous phase of the project, we received feedback on recommendations for land use along Six Forks Road. In response, changes were made to reduce recommended height and create a more graceful transition to lower-scale residential areas nearby. See the image below for details. How well do these changes meet the plan's overall goals of allowing more housing and employment options while also respecting lower-scale residential areas?

The previous Six Forks recommendations also included potential future street connections at Westridge Drive/Northfield Drive/Six Forks Road and at Gates Street. In response to feedback, those recommendations have been changed as well. The Gates Street connection would be a pedestrian connection. The Westridge/Northfield/Six Forks connection has been removed. A future study would consider the type and timing of any connections and also consider issues related to school transportation needs along Rowan Street related to Carroll Middle School and St. Timothy’s. See the image for details. How well do these recommendations meet the plan’s goals of improving walkability, providing more travel options, and ensuring safe travel speeds?
