100 Meetings in 100 Days, an Exercise in Public Engagement
On June 2, the Department of City Planning began an initiative to host 100 events in 100 days. From First Friday, June 2 through September, planners will provide opportunities where the community can engage with multiple city planning efforts.
As of July 11, we are almost at the halfway mark with more than 40 events completed. Planning staff has met with more than 1,258 people to talk about topics such as rezonings, development projects, and major City projects such as the Comprehensive Plan Update, Avent Ferry Corridor Study, Six Forks Road Corridor Study, and the Civic Campus project, among others.
Coming up in July, there are numerous opportunities to meet Planning staff and talk about what is going on where you live, work, or play, including:
- Come to the Midtown CAC meeting to hear about the Six Forks Road Corridor Study on July 24 at 7 p.m. at the Five Points Center for Active Adults.
- Stop by our booth at the Raleigh Downtown Farmers Market on Wednesday, July 26.
- Join us for an AMA with Ken Bowers at our pop-up in Exchange Plaza on Thursday, July 27.
If you have ideas or want to have the City Planning Department attend your event contact Roberta Fox to learn more.
Information gathered at the 100 meetings will be used to influence specific planning efforts and/or provide insight into effective outreach methodologies.
