Tight Lines Design, Raleigh

13 Apr

David Mauer’s design firm Tight Lines Design is very inspiring. Listening to him describe the transformation in the Cooke Street neighborhood and the positive energy that is creating real
community in the area was inspirational. If it can happen there it can happen anywhere, right? The ingredients for the transformation included a shared greenway, front porches, differing designs and finishes and a back yard space that is open instead of sectioned off and fenced. The “eyes on the street” model helps keep suspicious activity to a minimus and the neighbors are
looking out for one another instead of looking the other way. They are invested in keeping the neighborhood safe, and continually weaving the connections to a stronger community.

Thank You David! http://cookestreetcarnival.com/
