Mission Statement: Our goal is to save all 306 acres of the Dorothea Dix Campus for a World Class Destination Park for future generations.


Dix306 Resolution Passed Unanimously in the Democratic Party


On August 25th, 2007, the North Carolina Democratic Party Platform and Resolutions Committee passed the following resolution in support of establishing the Dorothea Dix property as a Destination Park.

27. A Resolution of Support for 306 Acre Destination Park on the Dix Campus:

WHEREAS, Dorothea Dix dedicated her life to those with mental illness and whose kindness and concern for others inspired the establishment of the first mental health hospital in North Carolina in 1850; and

WHEREAS, with the closing of Dorothea Dix Hospital at the end of 2008, there is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to protect the remaining 306 acres on the Dix campus and preserve it as a world-class destination park; and

WHEREAS, preserving the historic buildings located on the Dix campus for future public use respects the legacy of the past and promotes future opportunities; and

WHEREAS, the preservation of 306 acres as a destination park ensures the wellbeing of future generations, our economic stability and our quality of life; and

WHEREAS, 306 acres will not come close to being enough green space for North Carolina's quickly growing and expanding population; and

WHEREAS, North Carolina prides itself in balancing progress with preservation; making North Carolina a great place to live and work; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, that the Democratic Party expresses support of the land use plan that preserves the 306 acres of the Dix Campus as a world-class destination park for all of NC; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the Democratic Party encourage all elected officials to endorse and support this plan to preserve the 306 acres on the Dorothea Dix Campus as a world-class destination park.
