Falls of Neuse Area Plan update – comment through January 2

Greater Raleigh Convention & Visitors Bureau – In August 2017, the GRCVB began a year-long process to define Wake County’s future as a destination and to create a Destination Strategic Plan for the county. Since that time and under the directional guidance of Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), the consultant retained to assist with plan development, the GRCVB team has plotted various steps to understand the true opportunities and needs facing Wake County as a tourism destination. The process thus far has involved surveying 380 different stakeholders and interviews with nearly 60 different community groups. The GRCVB now seeks the input of the Wake County residents via an online survey, which will remain live through January 31, 2018.

Information on the Resident Survey 
By completing the five-minute survey, county residents will provide valuable input on the future of the area as it grows into a more vibrant visitor destination. As a thank you for participating, residents who complete the survey can also be registered to win two great staycations, one in downtown Raleigh and the other in historic downtown Cary. The survey can be found at

All meetings at Raleigh Municipal Building, 222 West Hargett Street, unless otherwise noted.
