Hello there! Just a couple of things to pass along on this cold February day…

We’ve recently updated our Rezoning Application (revision date 02.08.2016) and Code Interpretation Request Form (revision date 02.08.2016). If you are a frequent user of our services, we suggest that you bookmark our Development Forms and Applications web page to access these forms. This will ensure that you are always using the most recent version, needed by our intake and review staff when processing application packages.

And if you haven’t been to one of our UDC Talks lectures, I encourage you to check it out. The Urban Design Center (UDC) will host the next lecture on Wednesday, February 17, at noon at the COR Museum. Speakers Grayson Maughan from the Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Resources Department, and Gina Ford, ASLA, Principal of Sasaki, will present “Micro, Macro, Mega, and Moore: Designing Landscapes of Urban Change.”

In an effort to maintain competitiveness and address broader economic, ecological, or social issues, cities across the United States are investing in innovative planning and design. In her lecture, Ford will discuss projects at a range of scales where landscape is leading this charge as a powerful urban catalyst, including a case study on the planning and design of Raleigh's Moore Square.

UDC Talks is free and open to the public. Registration is not required and attendees are welcome to bring their lunch. Participants are eligible to receive continuing education credits via self-submittal to AICP, AIA, and NCBOLA.

If you are interested but unable to attend, highlights from the session will be tweeted @RaleighPlanning #UDCtalks. UDC Talks will continue next month with a lecture called “Downtown Construction and Pedestrian Accommodation.” Check out the UDC Talks web page for more information about this and other upcoming lectures.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful week!
