Raleigh leaders OK master plan for Dix Park

March 1, 2019

Raleigh leaders took the next step toward the creation of Dix Park on Tuesday when they unanimously approved a master plan for the sprawling area near downtown. The decision was met with thunderous applause from park supporters, most wearing blue Dix Park T-shirts. Unzipping her jacket to reveal a blue Dix Park T-shirt, longtime park supporter Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane made the motion to approve the master plan. “It was extremely heartwarming to see a full room of people supporting this,” she said. “To come up with a plan that 65,000 people gave input on and have unanimous vote (from council) really means a lot. Now we celebrate, take a deep breath and get started on the next part.”
