The project logo Capital Boulevard North Kickoff Survey

We would love to hear from you! This survey seeks your opinion on how to measure the success of the corridor on topics such as traffic, appearance, pedestrian and bicycle facilities, transit, housing, and the future of commercial development. Click on participate to add your feedback.

The study area is outlined with a black line in the map below. This study started with the Visioning phase in June and July of 2018. Now the kickoff phase has begun. In this phase, we want to confirm what we heard in the visioning phase and use that information to set measurable goals for the study. The corridor study 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!

The Capital Boulevard North study area is over four miles long. That can make it difficult to think about the whole corridor all at once. The image above shows the Capital Boulevard North corridor organized into three sections. The sections can be used to help us think about transportation, land use, and real estate market conditions in a more focused way. Do you feel comfortable using these sections for the next steps in the study, where we will discuss specific ideas for improvements? You may use the space below to explain your answer.

This study will look at two areas along the corridor to consider specific land use visions. These visions can lead to policy recommendations for those sites or they can simply be examples for how the community would like to see development occur generally in the corridor. One of the sites will be Triangle Town Center. We are considering Mini City as one option for the other, but we would like to hear your ideas. A map of Mini City is shown in the image above. Would you like to use this study to create a land use vision for Mini City, or is there another location that you would prefer?
