Raleigh, N.C. — The City of Raleigh is planning to rezone about 30 percent of its land, and official are asking residents for their input.
The city has mailed 45,534 postcards to property owners within Raleigh’s planned rezoning. The Zoning District Remapping Project is the final phase of implementing the Unified Development Ordinance that took effect last September. The districts that appear in the City of Raleigh’s old development code will be removed and replaced by one of the UDO districts, phasing out the old development code.
The last day of the comment period on the initial draft map is Sept. 30.
In an effort to educate the public about the remapping project, the city has established a website offering the following information:
• A comparison between existing and proposed zoning
• Description of the new zoning districts
• Zoning fundamentals
• Methods for feedback
Property owners can call 919-996-6363 to leave a message regarding their questions or comments.
