About us

Community SCALE is a nonprofit coalition of residents across Raleigh neighborhoods working together to advocate for development in our communities that respects the existing built environment, the natural environment, and the history of individual neighborhoods.

With origins in several of Raleigh's older neighborhoods whose residents played a key role role in responding to the early waves of teardown redevelopment, Community SCALE quickly attracted interest from neighborhoods throughout the city.

Between 2007 and 2010, Community SCALE volunteers encouraged and educated citizens as they collaborated as stakeholders in the development of Raleigh’s new Comprehensive Plan, participated in events hosted by Preservation NC and the Raleigh Planning Department, presented their concerns at City Council and Commission meetings, and reviewed the code that became the Unified Development Ordinance (UDO).

Among Community SCALE’s most important projects has been influencing the creation of Residential Infill Compatibility Standards that are a component of the Unified Development Ordinance code and regulations.  It continues to play a role in advocating for responsible growth.
