WakeUP Wake County has identified priority issues affected by our local population growth.  WakeUP believes that we must always consider long term growth projections when making policy and infrastructure decisions today so that our county and region remains a great place to live for us all for decades to come.

WakeUP’s priority policy issues are:

  • Transportation and Land Use
  • Water Quality and Supply
  • Public Schools

In order to deliver a high quality of life to existing Wake families and be healthy and competitive in the global market in the long run, we must make the best decisions now for our future.  WakeUP monitors city, county and state policy makers in our priority issue areas for YOU.
