Neighborhood engagement

When the community comes together, we create something great. Through consultation with our Raleigh locals, we learn what they think and feel, so that we can be sure to deliver an inspired S.Saunders, a place we’ll all love.

Do you have an idea, suggestion or something you would like to discuss in more detail? We'd love to hear from you. Please leave your details and we will be in touch with you soon.
