If you haven’t been there, check out the ‘Makers’ Community’ of artisan studios next to Boylan Heights. This thriving community has long been one of Raleigh’s gems, and a great contributor to our city’s distinctive character. Many of their wonderful creations can be seen annually at the Boylan Heights ArtWalk. Mark your calendar, this year’s event is on December 6.
Protecting the uniqueness of neighborhoods keeps Raleigh’s creativity flourishing. We need to ensure that UDO remapping also protects this healthy mix of artist workspaces and historic homes. That’s why I’ve asked planning staff to meet with the Boylan Heights Makers’ Community and residents to find solutions to zoning change concerns.
Working together we can create quality growth while protecting neighborhoods.
