Final Community Meeting to be Held on Feb. 6
The city of Raleigh, in partnership with Dorothea Dix Park Conservancy, has embarked on a generational effort to create America’s next great public park. For the past 18 months, city leaders and staff have sought and received diverse input from the community. That input has shaped the vision of what is in this Master Plan. We are excited to see this plan become a reality.
“The core principles that are outlined in the Dorothea Dix Master Plan will guide the park’s transformation, creating a place of reflection, a place of interaction, and a place of community,” said Adrienne Cole, president and CEO of the Raleigh Chamber. “This truly will be a place for everyone. It will honor the legacy of Dorothea Dix. It will emphasize best practices in design, planning, and sustainability. Dorothea Dix Park will be an integral part of the fabric of our city for generations to come.”
There will be a final community meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 6 at the Raleigh Convention Center for anyone interested in learning more about the Master Plan.
For any media inquiries regarding the Chamber’s support of the Master Plan, please contact Vernessa Roberts.
