Advance Apex is one process that will result in two plans – a long-range transportation plan and an updated future land use map. The community-driven planning process will establish a vision for the transportation system and land use in Apex, identify needs and deficiencies, guide growth and development, recommend specific projects and strategies, and create an action plan for implementation.
