The City of Raleigh Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources Department is holding a series of public meetings to present proposed strategic plan recommendations for the Historic Resources and Museum Program. The HRM Program manages facilities, programs, and operations at the Borden Building, John Chavis Memorial Park Attractions, the City of Raleigh (COR) Museum, Fred Fletcher Amphitheater and Stone Circle at Fletcher Park, the Latta House and University Site Park, Moore Square, Mordecai Historic Park, the Pope House Museum, Pullen Park Attractions, the Historic Raleigh Trolleys, and the Tucker House. Additionally, the HRM Program manages a material culture artifact collection consisting of more than 20,000 fine and decorative historic objects.

The purpose of the HRM Program Strategic Plan is to set strategic goals for Historic Resources and Museum Program, to identify unique characters and strengths of Raleigh’s heritage ecosystem, and how best to integrate the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Resources System Plan as well as the City of Raleigh Strategic Plan. The HRM Program and our design consultant, HR&A, have completed a set of draft recommendations. The public meeting will begin with a short presentation after which the design consultant and City staff will be on hand to answer questions and receive comments from the surrounding community. All are encouraged to attend.
