Urban Design in Raleigh

Urban design matters! This is reflected in how Raleigh has shaped its form and growth over the last decade. Raleigh's fast paced growth in recent years came with its own new urban design challenges ranging from transportation, historic preservation, to managing public spaces and guiding the form and quality of development. Urban design experts at the Urban Design Center have played an influential role in the city’s transformation from a sprawling suburb to an emerging 21st century city. Please come and learn about how urban design has evolved in Raleigh with the influential role of the services provided by the city's Urban Design Center, an office of the Department of City Planning.
