city planning meeting

October is Community Planning Month

Planning plays a key role in creating the best Raleigh possible.

The City of Raleigh has planners in Raleigh Transportation, Raleigh Parks, Raleigh Water, the Engineering Services department, and the Planning and Development department. Planners work to improve the well-being of all people living in our communities by taking a comprehensive perspective. This approach leads to safer, resilient, more equitable, and more prosperous communities. We celebrate the role that planning plays in creating the best Raleigh possible.

We are working on a watershed study in Northwest Raleigh! Tell us what you experience in this area. Do you see flooding, stream erosion, or outdated stormwater pipes and drains? This will help us plan for future projects.  Learn about the study and take a short survey.
