Public involvement process announced to discuss Raleigh's historic districts

Posted May 2, 2014

— 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.
