This week, the City’s Planning Department hosted a series of Community Workshops and Focus Group Sessions to discuss plans for Raleigh’s future. As we all know, Raleigh has been one of the fastest growing cities in the country for years and will continue on that path. It is important for us to have a clear vision for the future of our City. The workshops held this week were the first step in crafting that vision.
Two sessions were held at Greystone Community Center, and it was great to see so many District A folks come out to contribute to the discussion! Non-residential development will continue to occur alongside of residential development, and it is importnat for citizens to speak up about what is important to them through that process. We all worked through some activities to identify what specific issues are the most important and some potential ways to meet citizens’ expectations.
The results of the Community Transition Workshops will be discussed in greater detail in similar meetings that are scheduled to be held later in the Summer. Please check back in the future to find out more information about the next round of workshops, and please come out and be sure your voice is heard!
