NC State and the city of Raleigh are collaborating to find ways for residents to enhance a healthy, creative and economically sustainable community as Raleigh is projected to become one of the nation’s fastest-growing regions.
“Uncovering Southwest Raleigh” is a cooperative effort between the city of Raleigh’s community services department, the College of Design, the Poole College of Management and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences.
The project will analyze how the district has evolved, what physical, economic and cultural resources are available and how those living, working and invested here perceive the district and the future of its neighborhoods. The project also hopes to develop strategies and resources to assist the community. A kick-off meeting for the 18-month long project is scheduled on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at 6 p.m. at the McKimmon Center.
