Design Guidelines Update
At its November 15, 2016 meeting, Raleigh City Council forwarded discussion of the updated Design Guidelines for Raleigh Historic Districts and Landmarks to its Safe, Vibrant and Healthy Neighborhoods Committee. The meeting was held Tuesday, November 29, 2016 at 5:00 in the Council Chambers. Subsequent to this meeting, the entire Design Guidelines were forwarded by City Council to the Planning Commission for review as a text change, as the Design Guidelines are referenced in City Code. Discussion at the Safe, Vibrant and Healthy Neighborhoods Committee meeting prompted the commission to offer a final amendment to the proposed Design Guidelines, which will be reviewed by the Planning Commission at its January 3, 2017 meeting. The memo may be found here, and the updated text may be found here. More information on the process is here.
