(how many acronyms can we get into the title? 😉
Hope you had a chance to attend the meeting on Monday night, but if not here’s a quick summary…
Tania Tully of the Raleigh Historic Development Commission, gave a good overview presentation on Historic Overlay Districts, their intent, how they work and how they are established. Her slides are enclosed, but there is more information on the RHDC web site. Doug Hill, staff member at the Planning Commission, was also on hand to answer questions about remapping.
The City is progressing with the process to create a Streetside Historic Overlay District (HOD-S) in Glenwood-Brooklyn, and it will be Raleigh’s first of this type (the other HODs are all “general.”) Most of the work falls to the City, but the one thing we are charged with is obtaining a signed card from every property indicating whether or not the given owner(s) support the establishment of an HOD-S.
We initially hoped to do this via the online survey, but it’s become clear that we need hard copy. So, to anyone who filled out the survey but didn’t provide name, address, etc… please go back into the survey when you get a chance and add that so we can get you a card to check off and sign.
We absolutely need everyone to fill out a card! Ask Bob, Gina, Phil, pretty much anyone connected with the effort, we will bring it to you.
See you then!
