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.

Thank you to all those who attended the Affordable Housing summit! If you were unable to make it, here is the daytime presentation and the nighttime presentation. The goal of the summit was to learn more about the issues that renters, homeowners, and housing developers face when it comes to affordable housing.

Thanks to all of those who took the Phase Now Survey! It closed out with 460 online responses and staff are still entering paper surveys distributed to community partners in the Study area. A summary of the survey results will be posted on the project page within the next couple of weeks.

Thank you to everyone who participated in the Phase Now Workshops! A meeting summary of these workshops is now available. You can view the Affordable Housing and Infrastructure presentation, and the Connectivity and Urban Design presentation.

The Issues & Opportunities Report is a document that documents areas that can be improved and set a foundation for the policies and budgetary recommendations that will come later in the study.
