Re: “Legislative update: After the crossover

In response to the honorable gentleman from Rocky Mount, I would only ask whether we in good conscience, should put the Executive Mansion up for bid to developers as well? It too has a great location in Raleigh and would be attractive for condos.

Re: “Imagine Dix

ronb - you're missing the point. As one who has riden the carousels at Pullen Park and Chavis Park and enjoyed countless walks and bicycle rides through both, I can safely say that neither is a destination park. Yes Chavis Park and Pullen Park are wonderful community parks, but neither currently offers or has the potential to have the "wow" factor and resulting influx of revenues that a destination park at Dix could.

Re: “Imagine Dix

Great article. What I can't believe is how anyone can say with a straight face that what Raleigh needs is another mixed used development. What?! We have a historic opportunity to do something great, to give Raleigh something that will make it a destination rather than just a stopping off point and the best that the ULI can come up with is condos, townhomes and offices, soccer fields over a landfill and a narrow sliver of green hillside. Gee thanks for the input and spectacular vision for our fine city. There's plenty of room around the Triangle for development. Do we really need more townhomes, condos and offices in an area that can potentially be so much more? We should expect something greater of ourselves and our leaders out of such a prime and pristine location.
