ADVOCACY

MRA Advocating for Midtown's Needs

The Midtown Raleigh Alliance takes the lead in advocating for our vibrant Midtown home. Issues of transportation, public safety, recreational access and overall quality of life are critical to keeping Midtown successful and appealing. We are committed to monitoring and advocating through the public processes to further Midtown’s success! Here are a few of the top issues we are working on.

STAYING VIBRANT

The Midtown Brand

The Midtown Raleigh Alliance is exploring a project with the City of Raleigh that would allow for Midtown to create its own unique look and feel, a ‘graphic identity’ if you will. Alliance staff has reached out to the City Planners at the Urban Design Center to look at the Downtown sign program and see if Midtown could create a way-finding sign program that would serve the purposes of both way finding and creating the sense of place that Midtowners feel exists here.

What's Shakin'

  • Businesses React to Sign Proposal

    Merchants from across the city have been bogging, tweeting and attending meetings regarding possible changes to way that they can advertise their businesses. The Raleigh Planning Commission recently held a meeting of their subcommittee on Text Changes,where the issues was vetted out and comments made on both sides of the controversial issue. The newly adopted Unified Development Ordinance made changes to the calculations required to establish signage for a businesses frontage, but most businesses have no idea about those changes.

  • Membership Survey Results

    In December the Alliance conducted a brief membership survey. We appreciate those of you who completed the survey. The members responding indicated they they enjoy the networking and speaker events and want more of them. They attend the socials and are interested in knowing what is new and changing in Midtown. Our members also want us to continue work on our established priorities, and to continue to build the Midtown Brand. Full survey results are available by clicking the “Survey
