It’s a Family Affair... This first time you meet Billie Trader Litwin, you immediately notice somethingdelightfulabouther.Sheisattractive, well-spoken and always upbeat and cheerful. It is readily apparent that those attitudes are sincere and that she is passionate about her life. And why wouldn’t she be? She is living her dream. We were unable to get an admission as to how many years ago it was that Billie, the mother of two small children entered the job market in a field that would ultimately define her. From a job as a part-time musician, Billie became a sale representative for a major eyeglass frame company. She quickly advanced and in short order was managing a major overhaul of the way offices purchased eyeglass frames. “I would show the most beautiful, colorful designer frames to local optometrist offices. However, I could not get them to purchase anything but standard shapes and colors. They just would not take a chance! It was so frustrating! Everyone in town wore the same black, tortoise, or metals frames because that was all that was offered to them”. But that was then, and this is now. Today, Billie doesn’t just have a career, she has a passion. That passion fuels her family owned and operated businesses, Salem Optical, M’Eye Generation Eyewear Distributors and Couture Eyewear. Billie knew that offering cutting edge style at an affordable price was the key to success, so when the door opened for her to purchase a wholesale optical lab, she never looked back. Salem Optical was a local, independent optical lab and a Winston-Salem institution. Opened in 1967 by Carl and Marie Stewart, it was a perfect fit for an entrepreneurial family already entrenched in the optical business. “My son Chad and daughter Amanda had learned the business first hand, watching their mother and it was an easy transition for them to become pivotal members of the

NCKERCW17design.indd 5

Salem Optical team. When Chad was just a teenager I “encouraged” him to accept a job in an optical lab owned by one of my customers”. Little did they know that this would be a pivotal point in all their lives! Chad was now beginning his career as an “Optical Lab Rat”! “A few years later that lab fell on hard times, giving Chad the opportunity to buy the business. He was successful in turning it around. When the chance to purchase Salem Optical came, we knew what we had to do. Chad and I have partnered in each aspect of our optical businesses.” My daughter, Amanda Alexander is manager of Salem Optical.” As Salem Optical began to grow, Billie took another leap of faith and created her own line of eyewear. Salem began distributing their signature frame line “M’Eye Generation Eyewear. In the closing months of 2011, Billie and Chad began discussing opening a retail shop like no other in the area. They mentioned the idea to two local opticians, Judy Ridge and Ron Tuttle who had been customers of Salem Optical for nearly 20 years and had been friends with Billie since her days as an eyewear manufacturer’s rep. The two opticians were very much in favor of the new endeavor and by September 2012, Couture Eyewear was no longer just a dream but was reality. From the opening day in September 2012, Couture Eyewear changed the playing field for those wanting fashionable eyewear and styles that weren’t available in their local doctor’s office. With a selection of over 2,000 eyeglass frames and the latest in optical lens technology, Couture Eyewear was like nothing before seen in the area. By the fourth year, Billie and her family saw the potential for an additional location and there was no better spot than their own home town of Kernersville. Chad’s wife, SusanTrader, a North Carolina license optician, readily agreed to operate the newest location.

The daughter of the late Dr. Richard Bailey MD, the first ophthalmologist in Lumberton, North Carolina; Susan was no stranger to optical business. In the summer of 2016, the second Couture Eyewear was up and running in the growing community of Kernersville. Both locations were designed and decorated by Billie and the look and décor of each shop is striking. With bright green, blue and raspberry covering the walls and accents of yellow, red and purple, each shop is an optical experience in more ways than one. People continually remark how much they enjoy visiting the shops because they are so bright and cheerful that they “make them smile”. “Approximately eighty-percent of the eyewear industry is controlled by one company. They manufacture the majority of eyeglass frames, own the majority of optical retail outlets and they also own a large percentage of the vision insurance companies.Theydictateyourframeselection,the type of lenses you may choose and where you are allowed to purchase your eyewear.” Salem Optical (Celebrating 50 years in Winston Salem) M’Eye Generation Eyewear, ( Worn by thousands of military veterans) and Couture Eyewear are 100% family owned and operated. And with access to over 5,000 other fashion frame companies that have amazing styles and not encumbered with insurance companies dictating your choices, we are your go-to optical shop!” Fortunately for Billie, she only has to describe what she wants the shop to look like and she has another family member who can make it happen. Her husband, Brent Litwin is an engineer and builder. When questioned about working with Billie, he remarks with tongue firmly in cheek, “Whatever she wants.” So as you can see Salem Optical, M’Eye Generation Eyewear and Couture Eyewear are labors of love and family businesses. All are privately owned by the Trader / Litwin family and not regulated by the big companies that control nearly 80% of the optical business in the United States today. Business meetings and brain-storming sessions can also be called “family dinners.” Oh yea…it’s a family affair. Advertorial

KERNERSVILLE HISTORY

ernersville’s rich history is front and center for all to appreciate. The newly created Kernersville Museum, a half-block from the intersection of Main and Mountain streets, provides educational displays of local lore and culture. The 1873 railroad depot on North Main Street showcases the appearance of a passenger rail station, complete with a ticket office and waiting areas. Both historical sites are managed by a full time director at the Kernersville Museum. In addition, the one-room school house at 4th of July Park is an authentic classroom from the 1800s. Both the school house and railroad depot were moved from other parts of town to their current sites. Local history can also be unveiled by visiting historic cemeteries at Kernersville Moravian Church and St. Paul’s cemetery. St. Paul’s cemetery was the pre-Civil War burial place of non-whites from the community, and is located behind Cagney’s Restaurant, on South Main Street. You can also experience a glimpse of history in the Heritage Row section of our Spring Folly festival. Heritage Row takes you back to life in the 1880’s with basket weaving, yarn looms, and blacksmith exhibitions all on display on West Mountain Street.

the town had only 147 residents but quickly grew to over 1,000 just two years later. A catalyst in the town’s growth was when town residents rolled up their sleeves and built a section of the railroad line through Kernersville, opening up opportunities for commerce and trade. Kernersville has become a logistics center ever since, combining rail, excellent road network, and air freight at nearby PTI airport and a FedEx Ground hub. Körner’s Folly is the centerpiece of a historic district that contains multiple private homes on the National Register of Historic Places. Körner’s Folly is the architectural wonder and home of artist and designer Jules Gilmer Körner. Built in 1880 in Kernersville, the house originally served to display his interior design portfolio. Visitors can now explore the 22 room house museum and its unique original furnishings and artwork, castplaster details, carved woodwork, and elaborate hand laid tile. Körner and his family are all buried across the street at the God’s Acre cemetery, on the grounds of Kernersville Moravian Church. At most recent count Kernersville has 24,306 residents and is a vibrant community located in the Heart of the Triad. n

We are not makers of history. We are made by history. – Martin Luther King, Jr. So, how did Kernersville come to be what it is today? The earliest recorded property deed shows that David Morrow acquired 200 acres through a North Carolina land grant. Local oral history, however, reports that Irishman Caleb Story received a land grant from the English Royal Colony of Carolina and it is rumored he sold his land for four gallons of rum. Most land in the area eventually belonged to another Irishman, William Dobson, who purchased 400 of his total 1,000 acres from Morrow. Dobson built both an inn and a store at the intersection of what is now Main and Mountain streets. General George Washington had breakfast at Dobson’s Inn on June 2, 1791, as he was visiting southern Revolutionary War battlefields. Washington is the first of two Presidents to have visited the community. George W. Bush made a nationally televised speech from Deere Hitachi in 2005. Eventually the land passed from Dobson to the Shober family, and then to Joseph Kerner in 1817. The town was later named for Kerner, a clockmaker from the Black Forest region of Germany. Descendants of Kerner still reside in the town and have been instrumental in preserving the rich history of Kernersville. John Wolfe III donated the Bellamy House, which is now used as the Kernersville Museum. Kernersville was incorporated in 1871, less than a decade after the conclusion of the Civil War. At the time of incorporation, COMMUNITY GUIDE

PTIA is located on a 4,000 acre campus that is served by six national carriers, connecting air travelers to major hubs across the country. Kernersville also benefits from PART commuter bus service from a South Main stop to Winston-Salem and Greensboro, not only transporting residents to employment in other parts of the Triad, but also bringing workers into Kernersville. A PART stop is also available at the new VA Kernersville Health Care Center.

Recently completed is the widening of Union Cross Road from Wallburg Road to Sedge Garden Road, including the diverging diamond interchange at I-40, which services one of the highest residential and commercial growth areas in the Triad. Also recently completed is the first section of Macy Grove Road widening and interchange with Business 40, which serves the Kernersville Medical Center, VA Kernersville Health Care Center and the Triad Business Park. The Department of Transportation has been working closely with the town to handle future transportation needs. Relocation of the intersection of Old Winston Road and South Main Street is underway and when completed, will service a new shopping center and improve access to popular residential areas in the Hopkins Road area. An extension of Macy Grove Road will start in late 2018, which will connect East Mountain Street with Highway 150, reducing traffic downtown. The diverging diamond interchange of Union Cross Road and I-40 has proven to help move traffic well in this area.

“ The reality about transportation is that it’s future-oriented. If we’re planning for what we have, we’re behind the curve.”

Regionally, construction on the second section of the WinstonSalem beltway is scheduled to begin in October 2017, connecting US 158 with US 311. By the end of 2018, widening the last five miles of I-85 in Rowan County will be complete, providing continuous six or eight lanes of interstate highway from Hillsborough to Charlotte. We can get where we want to go. n

– Anthony Foxx, 17th U.S. Secretary of Transportation Public transportation is also critical to seniors who no longer drive. A Senior Shuttle provides transportation from various senior housing centers to local shopping opportunities as well as medical facilities. In addition, the Shepherd’s Center secures volunteer drivers to transport seniors to appointments and shopping.

MILEAGE CHART TO: Outer Banks: Kill Devil Hills, NC ..... 295 miles

Kernersville benefits economically from the Norfolk and Southern rail line that comes through town, serving a number of industrial businesses. The initial rail line through town was the result of Kernersville residents rolling up their sleeves to lay track in the 1870s. Town population grew exponentially as soon as the town had access to rail transportation to support industry.

Boone, NC ........... 95.7 miles

We have a great highway network but the best is to come. We take for granted that both Business 40 and Interstate 40 have multiple Kernersville exits. We also are conveniently located near I-77 and I-85, providing access to north/south interstate travel.

SHOWCASING OUR CAROLINA LIFESTYLE TOURISM

K

Kernersville has evolved into a full-day tourist destination. A little more than a decade ago Körner’s Folly was the key point of interest that attracted visitors. The Folly has been significantly restored to become an even more popular attraction, but other historical features have been unveiled to complement Körner’s Folly. The newest part of the landscape is the Kernersville Museum, located in the “Bellamy House,” near the intersection of Main and Mountain streets. The one-room schoolhouse located at 4th of July Park is often staffed to give visitors a glimpse of education a century ago. Revolving exhibits and a full-time staff person are helping people to better realize Kernersville’s rich history. The museum director also coordinates visitor use of the restored 1873 railroad depot. Major sections of town have homes listed on the National Register of historic places, creating a great walking tour of the Carolina of “yesteryear.” A walking tour guide is available at Körners Folly, including historic cemeteries on the grounds of Main Street United Methodist Church and Kernersville Moravian Church. A short drive on South Main Street takes you to the St. Paul’s Cemetery, which was created as a final resting place for minorities prior to the Civil War.

“ Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” – Confucius A key attraction to the community is the Paul J. Ciener Botanical Garden, a seven-acre oasis in the historic district of downtown Kernersville. Each year additional gardens and features are added. When the botanical garden master plan is complete it will feature 25 distinctive gardens. Admission is free to observe the various garden areas and fountains on the property. In addition, many weddings and upscale community events are held in the carriage house.

Some people visit Kernersville for its wide sports appeal. The Ivey M. Redmon Sports Complex is home to the Kernersville Soccer Association game fields, as well as softball and youth baseball fields. The park is also the site of a cross country course that brings the top high school and ACC collegiate runners to the community for big meets. Across town, between Cash Elementary and East Forsyth Middle School is the Bagley Lacrosse Complex, which hosts local and regional lacrosse tournaments. People also come to the Kernersville Family YMCA for some of the area’s largest swim meets in their eight-lane competitive pool. The Kernersville Community Pool outdoor slide pool, and waterpark attract families to the area for summer recreation. People also visit Kernersville to show their respects at the Carolina Field of Honor, a veteran’s memorial that recognizes military service dating back to the Revolutionary War. It is located at Triad Park, which straddles the Forsyth and Guilford County lines. The park’s new amphitheater is used by the Arts Council and other groups for concerts and dramatic productions. Tourism is also about shopping, dining and hotel accommodations. Kernersville has them all. Main Street had a restoration and beautification project several years ago, making it an excellent specialty shopping destination. The community is blessed with a large variety of dining options, from fine dining to fast food, where music fills the air. We’d love to share our community with you. Stay in our hotels so you can truly wake up singing, “Nothing could be finer than Carolina in the morning.” n

CAROLINA FINE ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

I

f music and the fine arts are your passion, Kernersville has a lot to offer. The sounds of local and regional artists can be heard at several venues downtown on Friday and Saturday evenings. Retail stores such as Eclection, Brewer’s Kettle and Prissy Pollys Barbecue provide free country, bluegrass and other genres of music. Christian concerts and Gospel singing are often held in Harmon Park. Music at Twilight concerts are held on the town hall lawn the last Thursday from May through August. All of the musical performances are offered free of charge. Kernersville is known for its big music festivals. With music on two stages, Spring Folly is held the first full weekend of May each year, bringing in excess of 30,000 people downtown. Ranked as a top 20 festival in the Southeastern United States, Spring Folly also includes an art show, classic car show, carnival rides and specialty entertainment, in addition to tasty festival food. The third Saturday of August the Honeybee Festival is held at 4th of July Park, with live music and crafters taking the biggest spotlight. All are free to the public. Kernersville lays claim to being the home of Chris Lane, an up-and-coming national country artist. The 4th of July attracts thousands of people to celebrate Independence Day. A two hour up-tempo concert gets the crowd pumped for the fireworks display. The central viewing location for the concert and fireworks is the Raider football field at Kernersville Elementary School, although it can be viewed from many locations around town.

Kernersville Little Theatre gives local actors an opportunity to perform in one of their four major shows each year. KLT has also placed a priority on getting children excited about the arts. KLT partners with Kernersville Elementary School to give each student a children’s story book and then perform that story on the school stage a month later. The initiative is appropriately titled “Bring a Book to Life.” As Oscar Wilde once said, “The stage is not merely the meeting place of all the arts, but is also the return of art to life.” KLT has often had its actors participate in community events, such as playing the role of historic Kernersville characters at Spring Folly.

“ The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.”

July 4th features a festive community parade while Kernersville’s annual Christmas Parade, held the first Sunday of December, is the Triad’s largest Christmas parade. The other major community-wide gathering is the Downtown Trick-or-Treat. Monitored by the Kernersville Police Department, it is a safe place for young children to trick or treat on Halloween.

– Aristotle Kernersville has its own Arts & Craft Guild and several writers groups for the creative type. Public art is a new initiative in Forsyth County, including Kernersville. The Kernersville Rotary Club placed four figures at the farmers market, depicting the types of programs supported by the club. Kernersville is included in a county-wide public art initiative. Kernersville has its own movie theatre, bowling alley, and skating rink. Countryside Cinema shows recent release movies and Countryside Lanes attracts bowlers of all ages. n

FAITH-BASED WORSHIP & SERVICE

K

ernersville is known as a wholesome, family-oriented community. For many people, community ethics are shaped by the universal values of our area churches. Places of worship are important to Kernersville residents, and the lessons of worship guide our community life. C.S. Lewis once said, “We only learn to behave ourselves in the presence of God.” God is certainly present in Kernersville.

“ Worship is an it-is-well-with-mysoul experience.” – Robert Webber, American theologian Many area churches hold two different types of services, with separate contemporary and traditional styles. Some churches hold worship services in Spanish. While most worship services are on Sunday morning, some offer midweek evening services, and others celebrate the Sabbath on Saturday. There are more than 100 Kernersville churches to choose from.

Several churches have extensive facilities that offer families recreation options at their place of worship. First Christian Church offers a Family Life Center, while Triad Baptist Church operates a variety of faith-based youth and adult “Upward” sports programs. Many churches hold half- or full-day Christian pre-school programs. Many organizations and churches offer faith-based programs and services for the community. The Shepherd’s Center and Crisis Control Ministry provide services for seniors and needy families in crisis situations. Kernersville Moravian Church organizes the Kernersville Christmas Stocking effort, which provides Christmas gifts to disadvantaged families. Kid’s Café, held at First Baptist Church, tutors and feeds hungry children. Nehemiah’s Few, a ministry at Triad Baptist Church, provides handyman services for the elderly, disabled, widowed and shut-ins. First Christian Church hosts an annual “Night to Shine Prom,” a social event for people with special needs, held in cooperation with the Tim Tebow Foundation. Tim Tebow, 2007 Heisman Trophy winner, visited one of their recent proms on behalf of his foundation. Based on Matthew 25:40, the Kernersville Family YMCA provides financial assistance so that anyone can participate in its programs. The YMCA also coordinates the annual Community Prayer Breakfast on the National Day of Prayer, the first Thursday in May. Several area churches host Grief Share and AA programs. Christian counseling is available at CareNet Counseling of Kernersville. Fountain of Life Lutheran Church helps teens and young adults through the difficult teen years with their Girl’s Night In program. First Christian Church hosts “The Christmas Experience,” which depicts scenes from the Christmas story with holographic, multi-dimensional characters and sets. Even Spring Folly, the largest street festival in the area, devotes substantial stage time to Christian musical groups. No matter where you look, our places of worship and faith-based organizations have created a caring, Christian community. n

EDUCATION FOR THE FUTURE

K

ernersville is doing its part to change the world through education. Kernersville residents are blessed with excellent public schools as well as several private school options. Kernersville has five elementary schools, three middle schools, and two high schools, serving 9,300 students—almost a fifth of all students in Forsyth County.

school programs. Admission to the school is by lottery. For younger children, Triad Baptist Christian Academy provides a Christian environment for grades K-12. JV and Varsity sports are available in grades 6-12. A number of Kernersville residents take the short drive to send their children to Westchester Country Day School, in High Point.

Kernersville public schools include the county’s largest elementary school at Kernersville Elementary and the county’s newest school at Smith Farm Elementary, which also boasts a dual-language immersion program.

Community support for education is very strong in Kernersville. The chamber raises funds each summer through contributions and the popular Eating for Education restaurant promotion. In recent years, over 60 grants have been presented to teachers in the public schools annually, funding the creation of classroom education projects. Area civic clubs support the public schools and the chamber operates a mentoring “Coaches Who Care” program at several schools.

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” – Nelson Mandela Our schools are known for excellence in academics, athletics, the arts, and its faculty. Three of the past four county-wide Teachers of the Year have come from Kernersville, as well as the 2015 Principal of the Year, Trish Gainey. Perhaps an indicator of our commitment to education is that the Winston-Salem Forsyth County School Board of Education chairperson is Dana Caudill Jones, a Kernersville resident and business owner. In addition, the Kernersville area is home to the North Carolina Leadership Academy, a public charter school for grades K-12.

HEALTH & WELLNESS and unreimbursed costs. The medical center has continuously grown due to community support and continued investments from Novant Health. A new 60,000-square-foot medical office building is under construction. That building will include a multispecialty surgery center with two operating rooms and one procedure room at an estimated investment of $24 million.

Y

ears ago we had to drive to neighboring cities for our health care needs. Kernersville has turned that deficiency into a strength. Kernersville now has its own full-service hospital, Kernersville Medical Center, part of the Novant system. Specialty offices are springing up around the hospital. Novant Health Kernersville Medical Center opened in March 2011 and is a state-of-the-art medical and surgical facility with 50 inpatient rooms, an emergency room, an intensive care unit and surgical services. Kernersville Medical Center offers a fully accredited comprehensive bariatric surgery center, infusion services, a breast health center, and MAKOplasty robotic surgery. Novant Health regularly achieves top scores in health care quality ratings, added several specialized medical services, and hired more than 300 new staff members. In 2015, the medical center contributed $16.6 million in community benefit dollars, including subsidized services, charity care,

In addition, Cone Health Med Center Kernersville has also been recently established, containing an urgent care center plus many specialty practices, all in one facility. It provides a one-stop shop for health care needs. Wake Forest Baptist Health and Cornerstone Health have partnered together for numerous additional health care offices. Wake Forest Baptist Health also provides an educational piece with its School of Medicine, located just a few miles away.

“ There’s nothing more important than our good health – that’s our principal capital asset.” – Arlen Specter Opened in 2016 the VA’s Kernersville Health Care Center is a four-story regional outpatient clinic to service those who served our country through the military. The 40-acre VA clinic is positioned on Medical Center Parkway, across the street from the Kernersville Medical Center, allowing veterans to also ›

take advantage of specialty medical offices in the area. Twenty different outpatient medical services are housed in the VA clinic. There are many intangible benefits of Kernersville’s extensive medical facilities. Emergency services are now just a few minutes away for Kernersville residents. Visits to patients can now be done on a lunch break, because of the convenience of the hospital. Kernersville Medical Center is the largest employer, and when fully staffed, the VA Kernersville Health Care Center will be the areas second largest employer.

Many of the area’s largest community events are sponsored by the various medical providers, such as the Kernersville Medical Center and ConeHealth Med Center Kernersville. In addition, Kernersville dentist, Dr. Amy Jo Fischer is the driving force behind the Pink Ribbon Rally, an annual fund raising event to support breast cancer research. Local eye doctor, Dr. Amy Harper is particularly supportive of programs to help needy children receive proper eye care. n

The bottom line is, Kernersville residents are safer now, because of the presence of all major health care providers of the region.

The Kernersville Pink Ribbon Rally Fund was founded by Amy-Jo Fischer in 2010, following her battle with breast cancer. The event is held annually, and with the help of co-chairmen, Tom Hoth and Cindy Pounds, and the dedicated staff of Smiles by Design, money is raised to support patients undergoing breast cancer treatment with their non-medical expenses. This may include money for gas, utilities, groceries, babysitting, or other assistance.

Health care also relates to mental health. CareNet Counseling of Kernersville is a Christian counseling center, located on the campus of Main Street United Methodist Church. Thanks to the oversight and support of Wake Forest Baptist Health, counseling fees are based on family income, and subsidized by the hospital.

The Evans-Hopkins Breast Cancer Fund was established at Kernersville Medical Center, and is now a second fund at Cancer Services in Winston Salem, with the proceeds of the annual event. The Kernersville Pink Ribbon Rally includes a dinner, silent and live auctions, and a time of recognition for breast cancer survivors. The event is made so successful by the support of our local businesses, friends, family, and patients of Smiles by Design.

CAROLINA FOREVER LIVING IN RETIREMENT YEARS

K

ernersville is a great place to enjoy special years when family, fitness, service and recreation offers many options to best use your time. Kernersville also is the location of choice for people desiring to living closer to family. Kernersville is appealing because of its moderate climate and high “quality of life.” Whatever reason that brings people here, they don’t want to leave. A haven for seniors is the Kernersville Family YMCA. Senior fitness classes attract as many as 80 to 100 people, while water aerobics classes offer low-impact exercise. When class lets out, participants gather for coffee and fellowship in a caring Y atmosphere. The price is right: their participation is often helped by a no-cost membership made possible through many health insurance plans. Also popular with the seniors is the Senior Enrichment Center, held in the lower level of the library and operated by the Shepherd’s Center. A variety of classes teach new skills, such as use of computers, as well as providing services such as tax preparation. Some just gather for bridge and as a social outlet. Kernersville’s moderate climate provides opportunities for outdoor recreation. Kernersville is home to eight town-owned parks, some with walking

trails. 4th of July Park provides several loops of walking trails and also a dog park. Nearby Triad Park features miles of trails and a new amphitheater for concerts and other entertainment. The region is home to eight golf courses, all within a 20 minute drive from Kernersville.

“ Retirement is when you stop living at work and begin working at living.” Medical care is a big plus in Kernersville. Kernersville Medical Center celebrated its 5th anniversary in 2016 and more specialty medical offices are continually moving into the area. Major health care providers such as Cone Health MedCenter Kernersville and the newly opened VA Kernersville Health Care Center offer health care services within minutes of home. A critical piece to retirement living is the variety of housing options available for seniors. New condominium living, patio homes, assisted living as well as skilled nursing care facilities have all been developed recently. Downsizing doesn’t mean you have to give up living in Kernersville. It just means moving a few miles down the road to where you don’t have the responsibility of caring for a home. You can spend more of your time enjoying the high quality of life in Kernersville. That is what retirement is all about. n

“N

othing could be finer …” certainly applies to our town government. Kernersville has all the elements of a successful full-service town. Kernersville has done it right! We have our own police and fire departments, which ensures a very short response time in the event of an emergency. There are four fire stations strategically located within the 17.79 square miles of Kernersville’s town limits.

with a Cop” opportunities for citizens to meet informally with police officers. The department hosts frequent community seminars to help residents avoid scams and safeguard their assets. KPD officers open locked cars for citizens, provide funeral escorts, and participate in fund raisers for worthwhile causes. “Cops on Top” is a KPD fund raising effort for Special Olympics and they also generate support and provide leadership for the anti-drug and alcohol program, Kernersville Cares for Kids. Police presence at events such as Spring Folly, Downtown Trick-or-Treat, 4th of July parades and other events provides positive interaction with the community. All the Kernersville public schools have School Resource Officers (SRO’s) assigned, making our schools safer, and establishing a positive relationship with the students.

“ The time is always right to do right” – Nelson Mandela

Our Public Services department keeps streets well maintained and clear in the event of winter weather. The Solid Waste division has automated trucks for separate trash, yard waste, and recyclables pick up. The town hosts an annual Earth Day event to educate the public in how the community can be more environmentally friendly. The Kernersville Parks and Recreation Department manages nine public parks as well as a recreation facility. The town’s Community Development office proactively plans for future growth and coordinates planning with neighboring municipalities. The town’s communication department is linked with county, regional, and state law enforcement to ensure coordinated efforts in the event of an emergency. Our town is under the leadership of a mayor and five aldermen, with elections held every two years. Because of their caring, progressive leadership, the community has reaped the benefits of good leadership, and is well positioned for future growth. The caring town staff manages that growth efficiently. The town has also worked diligently to improve the “walkability” of the community, while making it handicapped accessible. All new housing developments have sidewalks. A great example of community service is the Kernersville Police Department. The Kernersville Police Department hosts “Coffee WWW.KERNERSVILLENC.COM

The town has developed partnerships with various organizations to provide cost-effective services for the community. The Kernersville Community Pool, Splash Pool, and outdoor pool is a partnership with the Kernersville Family YMCA. The town has a long-standing relationship with the Kernersville Soccer Association for a 1,200-player league to play their games at Ivey M. Redmon Sports Complex, and Kernersville Cannons lacrosse is played at the Bagley Lacrosse Complex. Most recently the town and Kernersville Bicycle Club has developed the 3.6 mile Kernersville Mountain Bike trail. The Kernersville Farmers Market, a project partnered with the Rotary Club, is located on town property. The town has received recognitions for many of its departments. Kernersville Police Department earned a CALEA certification of excellence, the Fire & Rescue Department is certified as a Heavy Rescue Department, and the Parks & Recreation Department is the smallest community in the state to receive a CAPRA certification. The town is certified as a Tree City USA by the National Arbor Day Foundation. The community is excited about the new $6 million Kernersville Library, anticipated to open by early 2018, powered by the latest in library technology. The Kernersville Library has always had one of the highest usage rates of any of the libraries in the Forsyth County system. Since 1999 Kernersville has maintained an official Sister City relationship with Dashi, Taiwan, with reciprocal visits every few years. In addition, the Sister City Commission has also kept a relationship with Furtwangen, Germany, the birthplace of Joseph Kerner. We also periodically host delegations from other countries interested in features of our town. n

ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT

K

ernersville has long been considered the “Heart of the Triad,” strategically located in the center of a region with Winston-Salem, High Point, and Greensboro forming the points of the economic development triangle. As the Piedmont Triad International Airport logistic and industrial areas grows, Kernersville’s prominence in the region becomes more significant. Kernersville is now one of the primary economic development centers in the region. Evidence of that enviable position is the establishment of the Novant Kernersville Medical Center (2011), VA Kernersville Health Care Center (2016), FedEx Ground Hub (2011), Deere Hitachi expansion (2014), plus new plants for Caterpillar (2011) and Herbalife (2014); to name a few of the larger developments. All are

either within town limits or literally within a stone’s throw of Kernersville. We’re not done yet. Land is available for future development in the Triad Business Park, West Mountain Street Industrial area, the Metro Activity Center, Kernersville Medical Park, South Park Business Center, and a 500-acre tract bordered by I-40 Business and Bypass 40. A new shopping center is under construction and paired with a new road project to enhance access to retail and major residential areas off South Main Street. Kernersville’s key goals are to “maintain a small town atmosphere” and to be a “unique high quality community within the Triad.” Its location on the two I-40’s and near I-85 and I-77 interstates provides a road network that is a magnet to ›

TRIAD LAND SURVEYING, P.C.

Kernersville has been pro-active in the tactical expansion of water and sewer to key areas where development is anticipated. Kernersville Community Development Director, Jeff Hatling, said, “Where there is water and sewer you will have development. Where there is no water and sewer growth will be sparse.” This is true for industrial, commercial and residential development. Utilities are already in place for major industrial, office, commercial, and housing developments. The town is ahead of the curve with growth management plans – land use, thoroughfare, street, pedestrian, bike, and growth and traffic plans so that we will achieve quality rather than quantity development. Kernersville has also established overlay districts with high building standards, enhancing the appearance of existing properties in major corridors, along with guiding the quality of future development.

– Author Don A. Holbrook There is a corresponding relationship of population growth with job growth. People move to an area that has available jobs and employers like to have their workers nearby. Has it worked? With a community population of 24,000 there are approximately 18,000 jobs in Kernersville. When you consider there are about 10,000 young and elderly people in the community not in the work force, statistics show that jobs are available in our community. Kernersville works closely with regional economic development organizations—Winston-Salem Business Incorporated, Greensboro Economic Development Alliance, Piedmont Triad Partnership and the North Carolina Department of Commerce as the anchors to future development. The results are what we see today: a financially healthy, vibrant community positioned for growth in the years to come. n
