The Village of Clemmons was incorporated as a municipality in December of 1986. Today, the Village of Clemmons is a thriving community and a desirable place to live and work. The proximity of Clemmons to Winston-Salem via Interstate 40 has contributed to the rapid growth of the Village. As the Village has developed, the built environment changed from a smaller, village-scale community to a municipality with more auto-oriented developments.
Currently, there is a strong desire in the Village to redevelop in a way that reflects the historic community character. In 2010, Clemmons Community Compass, The 2030 Comprehensive Plan, was adopted by the Clemmons Village Council to guide the municipality’s future growth.
