The City of Raleigh is taking the current spread of COVID-19 very seriously and is working in partnership with Wake County and other partners as we continue to monitor this evolving situation closely.
With the safety and security of our community in mind, all City facilities are currently closed to the public, including, but not limited to, Raleigh Municipal Building, One Exchange Plaza (OEP), and 310 W. Martin St.
Beginning Monday, July 20 the City of Raleigh will open its revenue counter to the public at the Raleigh Municipal Building from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Development Services Customer Service Center at One Exchange Plaza will also resume in person services by appointment. Individuals and contractors are still encouraged to use virtual services. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting email@example.com or 919-996-2500.
Those who enter the buildings must wear a mask, complete a wellness check, and practice social distancing. Those who do not have a mask will be provided one and those who do not pass the wellness check will be unable to enter.
The State of North Carolina, Wake County, and the City of Raleigh have all declared States of Emergency in response to the COVID-19 virus. The County and the City of Raleigh also adopted a Proclamation of Emergency Restrictions, which is intended to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus by, among other things: requiring individuals to remain in their homes, except for certain essential activities, closing many businesses to the public, and prohibiting any gatherings which do not comply with its terms. Because of the risks to the public that would arise from continued in person meetings, the City is converting City Council meetings to a remote electronic format for the duration of the State of Emergency.

A number of closures and service delivery changes have occurred. View a comprehensive list of COR services and their status.

The State of North Carolina, Wake County, and the City of Raleigh have all declared States of Emergency in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Cooper has also imposed Executive Orders which are intended to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus by, among other things, requiring individuals to remain in their homes except when engaging in certain activities, and prohibiting any gatherings which do not comply with their terms.
The various in-person meetings and hearings regularly held by the Raleigh City Council, as well as the multiple City appointed boards and commissions (collectively “City Boards”), generally involve the physical attendance of the Council or City Board members, who in turn encourage physical public participation and input during those meetings. It is not uncommon for meetings to have a large attendance which could make compliance with the Executive Orders and currently recommended social distancing practices impossible.
The General Assembly has approved the use of remote meetings during the statewide COVID-19 state of emergency pursuant to Session Law 2020-2, N.C. Gen. Stat. § 166A-19.24. The remote meetings of the City Council and the City Boards will be conducted in accordance with the provisions of that statute.
City Council meetings will be held virtually until further notice. For more information about meetings of advisory boards and commissions, please visit our Events calendar.
The City of Raleigh continues to move forward with essential infrastructure projects around the city. These include major road, water, sewer, City building, and parks projects. Our staff and contractors are on-site to ensure that these projects stay on schedule and construction areas are safe. We take the spread of COVID-19 very seriously and are working with our contractors to ensure that our worksites adhere to all appropriate CDC guidelines.
Please note that project progress may vary due to schedule changes and supply availability.
