VOTE-YESWhen my wife and I moved to Raleigh ten years ago, one the first things we did to acclimate ourselves to the area was walk the greenways and explore the parks.  We actually got out a map and targeted any sections that were big and green!  If you feel like we do that these amenities define Raleigh’s commitment to good stewardship of resources and prizing of the quality of life associated with walking, biking and community centers, then this is your opportunity to vote with your wallet.

On November 4th, Raleigh voters will have the opportunity to approve a $91.7 million bond to upgrade and create new parks, greenways and cultural facilities.

Park Improvements

Greenway Improvements

  • Connecting Crabtree Creek Greenway from the Duraleigh area to Umstead State Park
  • Closing the one remaining gap in the Crabtree Creek Greenway trail by extending the greenway from Herford Street extending to the east side of Lassiter Mill Road

Cultural Resource Projects

Land Acquisition & Development

  •  Planning, designing and phasing of the implementation of a new destination park in the Devereux Meadows area adjacent to Glenwood South, at the corner of Peace Street and Capital Boulevard

Imagine the impact that these projects would have on the community.  As more people move downtown, green spaces are more utilized than ever.  Raleigh leaders and planners need our help in insuring that we continue to be the kind of city where green spaces provide the connection, activity and possibility associated with this development.

There are 23 projects that would be phased in over the next 5–7 years, beginning in the fall of 2015.  Review the full list of projects.  Download the Park Bond Projects Brochure.

Vote YES!!  The bond item is on the back of the ballot.
