Raleigh voters approved bonds in 2003, 2007 and 2014 for parks and greenway projects.

Parks Bond 2020

The Raleigh City Council directed the Parks, Recreation and Greenway Advisory Board at the Jan. 7, 2020 meeting to compile a list of projects that would potentially be funded through a bond referendum, a list that would be exclusive of investments for Dorothea Dix Park, but complement the important work of making Dorothea Dix Park a world-class urban park. 

The Parks, Recreation and Greenway Advisory Board will undertake this effort in a transparent manner using an appropriate process for providing information to the public and taking public comment. The Board’s work product, the identification of needed investments should be made with a strong emphasis on equity and reliance on the expert advice of our city staff.
