We are partnering with a faculty member at NCSU to better understand the needs and strengths of the Southwest Raleigh area. Since Meredith is located within the Southwest Raleigh boundaries, I am sending the online survey to all faculty, staff, and students to complete as well. It is our hope that a portion of this survey will bring to light how Meredith is viewed by its surrounding neighborhoods and how we can be a better neighbor to those residents. We would also like to see the perceptions that students have of the Southwest Raleigh area.
Here is the invitation to participate in the study along with the link to the survey:
Uncovering Southwest Raleigh aims to understand current and future forces affecting change and to develop strategies to enable the residents of Southwest Raleigh and the City to enhance and promote a healthy, creative and economically sustainable future for the district. The Triangle region is growing and changing. Many projections indicate that the Triangle is, and will be one of the country’s fastest growing regions. SW Raleigh is poised to respond and become a leader in this change.
To accomplish the goals set above, “Uncovering Southwest Raleigh” is developing an understanding of how the district has evolved, what the physical, economic and cultural resources are, and how residents, business owners, realtors, developers, investors, and other individuals living and working in the Triangle area perceive the district and the future of its various communities. With this understanding the project will develop strategies and resources to assist the community in acknowledging Southwest Raleigh as a great place to live, learn, work, play, raise a family, and create a future.
If you are a Raleigh/Triangle resident, please take 5-10 minutes of your day and fill out this survey regarding your perceptions and feedback towards Southwest Raleigh. Thanks!
