Triangle Community Coalition
Here’s What We’ve Done …
Since 1999, the Triangle Community Coalition has played a valuable and
instrumental role in shaping growth policies throughout our region.
Here is a list of our accomplishments for 2017:
- Two TCC members were appointed to the Wake County Affordable Housing Steering Committee and played active roles in crafting the final report which prioritizes revisions to land use planning and ordinances as solutions to address housing affordability
- Actively advocated for the successful passage of HB 406 – Repeal Orange County Impact Fees, which saved members millions of dollars
- Grew TCC membership by 40%
- Participated and provided input on the Town of Apex’s Advance Apex – The 2045 Plan, which will result in two plans: a long-range transportation plan and an updated future land use map.
- Held Luncheon Learn Series with topics such as Dix Park, Triangle’s Universities’ Growth, Triangle’s Southwest Crescent, Redevelopment in SE Raleigh and East Durham, and Chatham Park – The Triangles Next New Community.
- Held monthly Coffee Chats with municipalities including Fuquay-Varina, Cary, Morrisville, Knightdale, Holly Springs, Wake Forest, Chatham County, Durham School Board and Duke Energy. These informal meetings were attended by city and town officials and provided on-on-one communications with our members.
- Developed a survey to identify and resolve issues within development processes in the Triangle and met with municipal staff to discuss the results. TCC is the only organization in the Triangle that provides these annual assessments which are highly regarded by the municipalities.
- Published our monthly “in the KNOW” newsletter to provide members with the most up-to-date information throughout the Triangle.
- Participated and help lead the conversation to allow Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU’s) in Raleigh’s UDO.
ADU’s are an easy solution to help keep housing affordable as well as increase density.
- Hosted our signature Political Pig Pickin’ at the Angus Barn for members to meet and greet 60+ candidates running for municipal offices throughout the Triangle.
- Represented members at local community and neighborhood meetings.
- Kept membership aware of local issues that affect real estate.
- Developed relationships with our Chambers of Commerce partners throughout the Triangle.
- Held one-on-one meetings with leadership in a Triangle municipality to discuss the future of development fees and the actual impact on the community.
