Public involvement process announced to discuss Raleigh's historic districts
Posted May 2, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — The City of Raleigh Planning and Development Department announced a public involvement process to address three key issues surrounding Raleigh's historic districts.
The meetings were announced amid an ongoing controversy over a modern home under construction in the historic Oakwood neighborhood and will focus on:
- Do the design guidelines for Raleigh historic districts adequately reflect the community’s standards for historic preservation design review?
- Should the committee structure of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission be revisited?
- How can new residents be made aware that they live in a Raleigh Historic District and what that means for them?
The facilitator is expected to begin work in August. The community conversation is scheduled for Monday, September 22 at 6 p.m. The location has not yet been determined.
