Raleigh is made up of hundreds of small neighborhoods, each with their own character and needs. Mayor McFarlane works with police, schools, local nonprofits, neighborhood leaders, places of worship, parks and recreation and community centers to ensure the vitality and stability of our diverse Raleigh neighborhoods.
Mayor McFarlane has advocated for more citizen involvement in the zoning process, and has been a consistent voice for neighborhood concerns. One vital component to this are our many Homeowner’s Associations (HOAs). Nancy also strongly supports the role Raleigh’s 18 Citizens Advisory Councils (CACs) play in helping our city determine the future, keep our Neighborhoods strong and are “a connecting point between a municipal government and its residents.” The CACs provide a way for the City to share information about government activities and to receive feedback from the community. Through CACs, residents and neighborhood groups participate in decisions directly affecting them.
