Re: “Neighbors Think a Developer’s Plans for the Velvet Cloak Inn Are Too Ugly

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!

Re: “Are Raleigh’s empty promises on affordable housing a thing of the past?

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.
