100 Meetings in 100 Days, an Exercise in Public Engagement
In June, the Department of City Planning began an initiative to host 100 events in 100 days. From First Friday, June 2 through September, planners have provided and will continue to provide opportunities for you and the broader community to engage with a variety of city planning efforts.
By the end of July, Planning staff completed more than 60 events and have met with more than 2,000 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, the Falls of Neuse Update, and the Civic Campus project, among others.
In August, there are numerous additional opportunities to meet planning staff and talk about what is going on where you live, work, or play, including:
- Learn and give feedback about our City’s planning efforts going on in your neighborhood or around the city at Market and Exchange plazas on Thursdays, from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., at the Downtown Farmers Market on Wednesdays, 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. throughout August.
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.
