The City of Raleigh is undertaking a study to gather information and make recommendations regarding the construction of new residential houses within existing neighborhoods, something known as “infill development”. The purpose of this study is to offer guidance and recommendations for possible changes to Raleigh’s Unified Development Ordinance (UDO). An important part of this study is to learn community perspectives on residential infill. This survey is an initial step in the engagement process for this project. You can find information about the project and key definitions of concepts on the Residential Infill Development Study webpage.

The survey closes September 30, 2019 at 5:00 pm (EST).
