Livable Raleigh published our first blog, Why Livable Raleigh was Born, three years ago on February 17, 2020.

Just like any other three-year-old, we can’t wait to grow even bigger.

So, instead of a fund-raiser, we are having a “FRIEND-RAISER” as our birthday celebration.

If you rely on the kind of information you are only able to find through Livable Raleigh, we need your help to grow. Tell all your friends just what a valuable source of information we are and have them email us at to join our mailing list.

Livable Raleigh has become the “go-to” source for the most complete, honest, fact-based information about local Raleigh issues.

  • Our Facebook posts and Blogs keep you informed of the latest issues in Raleigh covering topics such as affordable housing, the environment, engagement, transparency in government and more.
  • The Week Ahead, our weekly email newsletter sent to subscribers, keeps you informed of what’s coming up in Raleigh. Email to join our mailing list.
  • The Calendar of events on our website is a one-stop shop for what’s happening for the next month or more.
  • Our website maintains Community Conversations as a resource of every webinar we have held.
  • We summarize Council Meetings for those who cannot attend. Council News.
  • We provided the most comprehensive City Council Election information you could find anywhere. And, we still have it as a valuable resource:  City Council Election
  • We have published contact information for the City and the Councilors in one easy to find location: Council Contacts  

We promise to continue to bring you information about Raleigh City Politics that you won’t find in the local print or television media. Information like:

What’s really missing from Raleigh’s Missing Middle policy – where we explain how Raleigh leaves out the benefits & protections for the community in policies

Tiny homes coming to Raleigh and it’s a “Bait & Switch” – where we explain how council provides for developers but not residents.

On Raleigh’s housing supply, actions speak louder than words – where we expose the hypocrisy of this Council claiming to be supportive of affordable housing

We need your help to continue growing. Tell all your friends & family members about us and how much you depend on us to stay informed.


Thank You for your continued support.
