Today the roads of Kernersville are still a crucial part of Kernersville. They not only provide transportation, but impact our tax rates, election of Aldermen and relationships with neighbors. To maintain the roads in Kernersville as an efficient transportation system the Town of Kernersville must expend tax revenue on State and Town roads. Elected officials are faced with the difficult task of balancing the need for road improvements and maintaining a low tax rate. That struggle leads to policy decisions regarding annexation of property to share in road improvement costs. Another difficult decision-making process is planning for the extension of roads through neighborhoods. With such complexity, a thorough planning process is crucial in assisting elected officials in their decision making.
