Downtown Revitalization Plan
The Town of Four Oaks has been working with the NC Department of Commerce Main Street & Rural Planning Center to assist with developing a Four Oaks Economic Development Assessment. The assessment consisted of collecting demographic and market data. The information from the assessment will be incorporated in to a Downtown Revitalization Plan. To review the Economic Development Assessment Report, click here.
From the Economic Development Assessment Report the Town adopted a vision statement and two (2) strategic goals and objectives which can be seen below. More detail on the vision statement and strategic goals can be found within the report.
Four Oaks, a gateway to North Carolina’s Capitol and coast, is an oasis of hospitality centered between Boston and Miami on I-95. Downtown is a center for creative local artisans with destination businesses, community events and social activity. Four Oaks is home to industry, business, family and an authentic heritage as deep as the roots of our Four Oaks trees.
Downtown Streetscape Master Plan
In 2019, the Town of Four Oaks embarked on a journey with WithersRavenel Engineering firm as well as the North Carolina Department of Commerce to make pedestrian safety improvements and enhance the appearance of the streetscape. This significant investment in the downtown commercial district will make the area more attractive for investments in new and existing small businesses as well as make the area safer for those seeking to live, work , or play downtown.
The town hopes to begin construction on this project in 2024 and will provide updates as implementation progresses. Renderings of the project can be seen below while construction plans can be reviewed at Town Hall.
