Roundtable Discussion: Big Decisions That Shaped a City @ City of Raleigh Museum  | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

The City of Raleigh Museum is proud to gather prominent members of our community in a special event featuring discussion of the key decisions that have helped make Raleigh what it is today. During the “Big Decisions Forum,” panelists will discuss “hot topics” such as the city’s creation as a planned community in 1792; the construction of major centers like Crabtree Valley, Cameron Village and North Hills; the merger of city and county schools and integration of the school system; and the Fayetteville Street renaissance. They’ll also talk about the “Big Decisions” we are grappling with today—including Dix Park, Union Station, the Wake Transit Plan—that will change the trajectory of the city in the future.

Complimentary beverages and snacks will be served.
