Most People Want Dix Site Converted To Park

Posted June 8, 2006

— A local group is making a big push to preserve open space in Raleigh.

  • "Friends of Dorothea Dix Park" want the 306-acre campus turned into a public park when the hospital closes in 2007.

    An independent poll released Wednesday shows 89 percent of those surveyed support the park idea.

    Sixty-five percent said they do not want to see any development on the land.
