Was to be heard at the Planning Commission, Committee of the Whole on 25Feb21, but there was not a quorum and the meeting was cancelled.
Rescheduled for March 11 at 4pm:
Unfortunately, the Planning Commission meeting was cancelled last week because there were not enough members for a quorum. I understand this can be frustrating for everyone involved, but Planning Commissioners are all volunteers with jobs and families, and occasionally enough life interruptions happen on the same day that a meeting can’t go on as planned.
Planning Commission did schedule a make-up meeting of the Committee of the Whole on Thursday, March 11 at 4pm. If you had signed up to speak last week, you’ll automatically be signed up an receive and invitation for this new meeting. For everyone else, the meeting and sign-up information can be found here: https://raleighnc.gov/

Raleigh Historic District Commission (RHDC) to discuss it at their March 16 meeting since the church is on the Bloomsbury National Registry District
The property is home to Hayes Barton Baptist Church which has existed in its current location since 1926. Accordingly, the future land use map designates almost all of the property as Institutional and a small part as Low Density Residential. A small part of the area to be rezoned is in the Five Points East Area Plan. Over the years, the church has acquired several residential lots along White Oak Road that are directly adjacent to the church campus. Churches are appropriate in both Institutional and Low Density Residential designations as they are permitted in essentially all zoning jurisdictions. The church now desires to utilize portions of these residential lots to expand the existing parking lot to provide better handicap access, facilitate easier access for strollers and those with mobility concerns, and provide overall better access to the church from White Oak Road. To accomplish these goals, the church plans to recombine the residential lots into the larger church campus (PIN 1704583153). However, some of the residential lots (as shown on Exhibit B) are subject to the Five Points East Neighborhood Conservation Overlay District (the “NCOD”) which mandates a minimum lot size of 15,000 square feet. The main church campus parcel is approximately 222,600 square feet rendering any recombination in violation of the NCOD.
To solve this problem, the church is requesting a rezoning for the sole purpose of removing the NCOD.
8. Historic Landmark Designation Removal Application – Josephus Daniels House
Jan 19, 2021 – Raleigh Historic Development Commission
Designation is where we intentionally choose to recognize and honor specific places of history. Designation is a value statement. Recent events have illuminated a broader understanding of systemic racism’s effects. We are questioning: with this
new understanding would we so honor this site today? Do the RHDC and the Raleigh City Council want to go on record as maintaining the honorific of the landmark designation, awarded not for architecture but because of the property’s association with the personage of Josephus Daniels – a designation that celebrates his accomplishments won in large measure through his
fomenting of white supremacy? We designate hallowed ground where tragedies occurred as vessels of memory. Daniels’ legacy in white supremacy is certainly now having its reckoning as a tragic episode. But this site, and this designation, does not stand in the same way as a memorial of hallowed ground, to teach us lessons. It is a celebration of accomplishment. Is white supremacy the kind of accomplishment upon which the City of Raleigh wishes to officially confer recognition? What lesson does that convey?
9. Other ongoing development cases in commercial Five Points areas:
