::First NC Legislator Endorses Dix Deal

Friday June 22, 2007

RALEIGH - As talk heats up about the City of Raleigh's efforts to buy the 306 acre Dorothea Dix property from the state to convert to a Raleigh version of Central Park, at least one state legislator says he endorses the idea.

In media statements released through the City of Raleigh and other supporters of the Dix Park plan, state Senator Neal Hunt
(R-Wake County) has publicly stated that he is in support of the park plan.

"I am proud to support the efforts to preserve the remaining acres on the Dix campus for a destination park and gardens, something that everyone can enjoy for years and years to come," said Senator Hunt in a statement.  "This decision comes after much thought and consideration for what is best for North Carolina and Raleigh.  The money generated from the sale can be used to fund the critical shortfall we have in our mental health programs."

Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker held a press conference last week to unveil the city's proposal to buy the Dorothea Dix land from the state for $10.5 million.

"The Dix land has a great future to become a central park for our rapidly growing capital city," said Raleigh Mayor Charles Meeker in a statement to the media.  "It can also serve as a destination for all North Carolinians to visit and use, which I know Senator Hunt agrees."

The 306 acre mental hospital campus in downtown Raleigh is scheduled to be closed soon by the State of North Carolina.  The state has not made a decision yet on the property and potential options include selling the property outright, creating some mix of development and park use, or selling the property to the City of Raleigh for use as a park.  ::
