Strategy

What neighborhoods are being studied?

The study will look at neighborhoods of Caraleigh, Fuller Heights, Wheeler Crossing, Carolina Pines, Wheeler Park, Walnut Terrace and Gateway Park.

What is the goal of the Dix Edge Area Study?

  • Understand the needs, wants, and hopes of the community and then use that information to
  • Study the current conditions of the area, which may include a real estate market assessment, a sidewalk or bike lane audit, or stormwater assessment which is shared with the community to help
  • Develop Strategies to mitigate displacement and gentrification, improve the transportation network for all users, address the health of the creek and stormwater, and create policies to encourage good urban design. We then take this information and
  • Create a plan that outlines strategies, policy changes, funding sources, and City Departments who will come together to help make the plan a reality.
