City of Raleigh to Host Two Workshops on Moore Square Master Plan
The City of Raleigh will hold two planning workshops on the development of a draft master plan for Moore Square on Thursday, Sept. 9 at Cobblestone Hall in Historic City Market, 215 Wolfe St. The afternoon workshop is scheduled for 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., and the evening workshop will be held from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Participants need attend only one of the workshops as they have the same format.
Both workshops will include a project introduction, interactive site model discussion, break-out group workshops, and a wrap-up session with discussion on next steps.

The City has awarded an $184,000 master plan services contract for Moore Square to Chris Counts of Chris Counts Studio in Charlottesville, Va., the winner of the Moore Square Design Competition. The City Council approved the formation of the Public Leadership Group to work with Mr. Counts and ensure public input in the master plan process for Moore Square. A second set of public workshops will be held in November.
A draft master plan for four-acre Moore Square is scheduled to be presented to the City Council for its consideration next February. As the owner of Moore Square, the State of North Carolina also will review the draft master plan. Funding for implementation of the master plan has not been determined.
