N TARBORO STREET
WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
The City of Raleigh is reimagining N. Tarboro Street from Oakwood Avenue to New Bern Avenue and needs your feedback.
We've extended the survey date. The new close date is midnight on March 31.
The City is considering updating N. Tarboro Street and we want to know what enhancements you would like to see. In this survey we explore the different improvements we may be able to implement along the street, and we want you to tell us which ones are the most important to you.
We have broken the possible improvements into four different categories:
- Placemaking elements;
- Traffic calming measures;
- Pedestrian improvements; or
- Street improvements.
Please read through all four sections below and then choose the category that is most important to you.
Placemaking creates public spaces that attract people, build a community by bringing people together, and create a local identity. These tend to be lower risk and lower cost, capitalizing on the creative energy of the community.
Here are two examples of placemaking
