Vision Statement

Stokesdale should be a town that is quiet and attractive that promotes the “small town” nature of the community. Effort should be made to preserve, maintain, and enhance the rural character, natural habitat, and beauty of the community. There should be a sense of community through both formal and informal association. Residential development should enhance the community through appropriate neighborhood design, connectivity, and environmental protection of the town’s natural resources. The historic nature of the town, especially its downtown, should be preserved and maintained through the addition of businesses and services that cater to the citizens and are in harmony with existing development. Effort should be made to create and enhance the sense of a vibrant community that is safe and convenient for all citizens. The town should promote alternative modes of transportation, including pedestrian, bicycle, and equestrian movement throughout the community.
