DOWNTOWN: VALUABLE AND RISING The additional tax revenue generated by dense, downtown development can provide needed funds for new or additional government services from police and fire protection to affordable housing or new infrastructure such as sidewalks, bike lanes, green space, and a bike share system for Raleigh.

This additional tax revenue is generated on far less land than development outside the CBD. Downtown is Raleigh’s most valuable area, as shown below, with downtown in the center of the map.
