"Creative District" study moves forward for SW Raleigh



  • from SouthwestRaleigh.com

A quick update on this story from last week: The City Council voted 7-1 today to let the Southwest Raleigh economic development study go forward at a cost of $150,000 (plus $40,000 from N.C. State University).

The lone no vote today, as she was at the Budget and Economic Development Committee a week ago, was at-large Councilor Mary-Ann Baldwin.

This is the study that many Southwest Raleigh-ites hope will result in the branding of their part of the city as the Creative District — together with some creative approaches to transit, housing and other programs to spur economic growth.

Councilor Thomas Crowder, whose District D spans SW Raleigh, has been pushing for the study for more than a year.
