Let's Preserve Historic Glenwood-Brooklyn

Our next neighborhood meeting is another special presentation, this time by City of Raleigh Planning staff to talk to us about the UDO and remapping our neighborhood.

Monday Oct 26, at the same place as our last special meeting about the historic district, the Seven Event Studio at 510 Washington St.

Put it on your calendar as this will likely be the only opportunity we’ll have to question these folks in depth.

More info is on the way.

There are weather make-up dates and info on how to make sure your leaves are picked up here: Seasonal Loose Leaf Collection Information.

Don’t forget you can always put your leaves and yard waste out every week on your trash pickup day (Thursday) as usual, as long as they are contained in trash cans, paper bags or clear plastic bags, so the crew can see what’s inside.

Check the link above as the dates get closer as they may change due to changing conditions.

(how many acronyms can we get into the title? 😉

Greetings neighbors,

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!

Your HGBNA team

Our next HGBNA meeting will take place at a different location and time in order to allow Tania Tully, Preservation Planner with the Planning Commission and Doug Hill of the Planning Commission to join us for an important informational session on everything you ever wanted to know about Streetside Historic Overlay Districts (HOD-S).

Preserve Glenwood-Brooklyn

The City has initiated the process to establish a Streetside HOD in Glenwood-Brooklyn (aka Historic District lite). This will have a major impact on future development and the preservation of the historic character of our neighborhood, so it affects everyone who lives here.

If you attend only one HGBNA meeting this year, make it this one.

Where: Seven Dance Studio
501 Washington St., end of the street, next to the railroad tracks
(enter in the back of building from the parking lot)
When: Monday, August 24 at 6:30pm

Important: BRING YOUR OWN CHAIRS! The studio is just a big room, so we’ll need to bring our own seating.

Coming up: watch your inbox for a survey in the next few days—this will be used to gauge support for the HOD.

Questions about the meeting or the proposed HOD-S?

Thanks.
