NEWS | Community SCALE of Raleigh

Are you concerned about how new zoning codes will change your neighborhood?

You should be. The City of Raleigh is drafting new zoning codes and regulations.  This is an opportunity for you to be involved in getting appropriate rules and regulations in place.

The new Unified Development CODE (UDO) could impact you with:
  • out of character development
  • intrusion on your neighborhood by nearby institutions
  • noise and light pollution in your house
  • flooding
  • traffic and congestion
  • loss of urban forest
  • loss of space for parks
  • higher property taxes on small urban lot sizes
If you are interested in participating in an organized effort to review and
officially comment on the draft codes and regulations, please let us know.

In addition to the Raleigh Planning Department, an extensive effort at coordinating UDO information is available at
