REVISIONING PROJECT CONTINUES FEB. 10

REVISIONING ROUNDTABLE: NEXT SESSIONS FEB 10 AND 12 AS PLANNING FOR FUTURE CONTINUES

The next phase of the Cameron Village Area Revisioning Project begins Tuesday, February 10. Members of our community are invited to a round-table workshop  from 7 to 9 pm in the St. Mary’s School dining hall. Given the projected growth in our area, participants will be exploring issues such as transportation, traffic, parking, zoning, building height, and density. This event is expected to be quite different than the kickoff event in December. The community participants will be working with maps, briefing books, and a facilitator. On Thursday, Feb. 12, the results will be presented and discussed.

The Feb. 10 and 12 events focus on Cameron Village and Oberlin Road.  A similar workshop for the Hillsborough Street commercial district and surroundings will take place on March 24 and 26.

The City of Raleigh has hired consultants to help develop a plan that will guide growth in a study area that runs from St. Mary’s to Chamberlain streets, and from Hillsborough Street to Wade Avenue. However, community participation is essential. Nobody knows our neighborhoods and their needs better than the people who live here.

Among the concerns expressed at the December meeting were traffic on Oberlin Road, need for more  and safer pedestrian crossings, building height,  park preservation and enhancement, improved public transportation, and bus shelters.
