Week of June 26

June 27 Hillsborough CAC and Wade CAC joint meeting.  Good attendance.  Bob Geary reported on his conversations with the mayor about CACs, and seemed cautiously optimistic about the Mayor’s promise to launch a citywide process within the next month or so, led by outside experts, to improve citizen participation in Raleigh government. The time frame could be as much as 2-3 years.  Residents should continue letting elected officials know how valuable CACs are.

The Raleigh Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) has been updated with it's 3rd Supplement, January 2017 by adding the following text changes:
