Residents of the Town of Bermuda Run are invited to attend public input meetings on the town’s long range plan
These meetings will provide citizens with an opportunity to share thoughts on issues like community character, land use, growth management, transportation, infrastructure, services, open spaces, parks and recreation, a town center, etc. Please plan on attending at least one of these meetings being held on March Monday, May 2nd, Tuesday, May 3rd and Thursday, May 5th. See the time and location details below. Pending verification of sufficient bandwidth availability, these meetings will be broadcast in real time on the Davie County Net-Cast Page.
The need for a comprehensive plan
The Town of Bermuda Run is facing the challenge of dealing with future growth issues, development design, business success, and the cohesiveness of the Town and future development plans. Due to the various growth pressures, infrastructure constraints, desire for a Town Center, and opportunities for amenities, a need exists for the development of a comprehensive approach to long range planning for the Town.
With the introduction of the Interstate 40 interchange improvements, additional commercial development, and pending plans for an event center and a medical facility, these pressures have become more evident. In order to guide future development, land use decisions, and any future changes to the text of the Zoning and Subdivision Ordinances, a multi-disciplinary team assembled by Benchmark has been selected to guide the Town in the preparation of a Comprehensive Plan. The Team includes Benchmark staff members and team members from Fuller Architecture and Miller Landscape Architecture. This well-rounded team will assist the Town in writing a Comprehensive Plan that embraces Bermuda Run’s sense of place, history and overall character.
The Comprehensive Plan Framework
The Team will be working closely with the Town of Bermuda Run’s Planning Board, citizens, business community, elected officials, and others in establishing a Comprehensive Plan that sets forth a sound framework from which to manage and direct future growth within the Town and its extraterritorial jurisdiction area.
A draft plan with goals, recommendations, and implementation strategies should be completed by early fall, which will be followed by a public meeting to obtain additional feedback.
