Bravo to Neil Riemann and the Cameron Park neighbors! Hillsborough Street is indeed one of Raleigh’s most important streets, traveled by many visitors to our city. There should be quality standards for what is built there. The big white-and-yellow plastic box at 1301 Hillsborough Street (where the Briggs mansion was demolished) is a disgrace!
Thank you very much for these thoughtful and informative endorsements. I disagree with some, but appreciate all.
This is a very sad day for Raleigh! Your columns have been beacons of wisdom for our community. We need you now more than ever! Please reconsider.
Thank you, Rep. Stam. You are so right!
Jane, I am so looking forward to being your neighbor, and working on these houses together! First I need to work on cleaning up my language . . .
Thank you, Jane. It is so wonderful to have this detail.
Bob, the areas you mention are mostly districted to schools with high percentages of low-income students. Some are at the tipping point of middle-class flight and segregation. Access to public transit is not more important than access to high-quality integrated schools. There is transit in other parts of the county; where there is no transit, we can add it. It is easier to add bus routes, than to re-integrate a school system after it becomes segregated.
