Presented by: City of Raleigh Museum

Date: Thu Mar 8, 2018

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. Participants include Mayor Nancy McFarlane, former Mayor Charles Meeker, former Mayor Smedes York, former Superintendent of Wake County Schools Bill McNeal, developer John Kane, Wake County Commissioner and former Mayor Pro Tem James West, and others. Director of the City of Raleigh Museum Ernest Dollar will moderate.

Cost: $10
