The Most Important Meeting You Can Attend This Year

Is Your Neighborhood on this Map?

RALEIGH, NC | Infill
If your neighborhood is not on this map, then development activities in your neighborhood are bound only by city-wide zoning ordinances, which treat property the same for established neighborhoods and raw land. This means, for example, a home can be built to a maximum height of 40 feet to the midline of the roof. Couple this with a home built to maximum setbacks and the house next door may take on renewed significance in your neighborhood.

Raleigh Planning Department to the Rescue

The Planning Department will host the second public meeting regarding residential infill construction on Thursday, May 29. The meeting will be held in the City Council chambers in the Avery Upchurch Municipal Complex (room 201). The meeting will begin at 7 p.m., and will focus on the results of the visual preference survey and nationwide best management practices. Please come to the meeting and make your opinions known!

They are not kidding. If you do not come to the meeting, they cannot hear you. If you are a resident of an established neighborhood and wish to have input on the future of your investment, this is the best opportunity for you to be a part of this discussion.

Did I mention this is the only formal invitation to shape this debate that you will be getting?
