Neighborhood Planning

Aycock Neighborhood Map


Since 2001, the Historic Aycock Neighborhood, in partnership with the City's Department of Housing and Community Development, has undertaken several intensive planning projects.


MSD Plan 2016 - 2019

Working Jointly, the City of Greensboro and the neighborhood produced the 2016 - 2019 MSD plan.


Summit Avenue Corridor Study

Working jointly, the City of Greensboro and the neighborhood produced the Summit Avenue Corridor Study, which charts a course for improvements on the main thoroughfares through the neighborhood. It was adopted by the City Council in September 2006.


Strategic Plan for the Aycock Neighborhood

Adopted by City Council in November 2003, this plan lays out concrete goals and actions for our neighborhood. It is our long-term blueprint for action. If you want to know what our neighborhood is about and what it plans to do, read this document!  The Strategic Plan will be reviewed and updated annually, beginning January 2012, to include measurable goals.


Strategic Plan for the Aycock Neighborhood - Update

Outlines progress made on the strategic plan.  Last updated in June 2012


The Aycock Traditional Neighborhood Plan

The outcome of a neighborhood planning charrette held in 2002, this book contains a broad vision of our neighborhood's future. Its ideas were refined and consolidated in the Strategic Plan for the Aycock Neighborhood and the Summit Avenue Corridor Study. Although the TND plan was not adopted as official city policy, it is nevertheless full of great ideas.


Tree Inventory Project


In fall 2013 The Charles B. Aycock Neighborhood and College Hills neighborhoods undertook a tree inventory project to catalog the trees in both neighborhoods.  The project was wrapped up in spring 2014.  To view the Tree Inventory Report Click Here .  To view individual trees on the City of Greensboro GIS Viewer click here .


Special Thanks

None of the above could have been accomplished without the assistance of many people on Greensboro's City staff. We would like to thank especially Stefan-leih Geary, Sue Schwartz, Dan Curry, and Andy Scott in the Department of Housing and Community Development. Thanks also to Chris Spencer and Adam Fischer in GDOT.

And thank you to the Greensboro City Council, which has strongly supported these efforts!
