Zoned In: Where Does Raleigh Go From Here?

Tested Podcast logo

In a recent episode of Tested, Kamaya Truitt examined how residents of the Southeast Raleigh community are combating food insecurity and providing sustainable fresh food options. But these community strategies can only go so far without systemic support from the city. Truitt talks with Mitchell Silver, former city planner for Raleigh, about Raleigh’s growth in the last decade, and how policies like zoning laws influence that community growth.

Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Truitt moved to Durham, North Carolina, and made it her home. She quickly matriculated from student reporter to Youth mentor and was later named Director of WUNC’s Youth Reporting institute. Truitt has produced radio reports for national broadcast on NPR’s Here & Now, and Oakland Youth Radio. She also currently serves on WUNC Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accountability Committee.
Charlie Shelton-Ormond is a podcast producer for WUNC.
