Kannapolis posts master plan survey online

KANNAPOLIS ó The city has posted a survey online to collect feedback on the proposed Center City Master Plan, which makes recommendations for improvements in transportation, land use, economic development and the overall quality of the community.
The plan and survey can be accessed at the cityís website, www.cityofkannapolis. com. The survey ends April 1.
After months in development, the city unveiled the plan in January. Its 35 proposals range from the cosmetic ó putting landscaped medians in the middle of Dale Earnhardt Boulevard ó to lowering speed limits on Loop Road and constructing a shelter for a downtown farmerís market and festivals.
The plan has been updated from the original draft with additional economic development recommendations.
Residentsí suggestions and comments will be compiled and provided to the Planning and Zoning Commission and Kannapolis City Council for possible incorporation into the plan when the bodies consider adopting it in April.
