I hope you'll join me tonight at the last of the three "visioning" workshops for the Comprehensive Plan Update.
It will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.at North Raleigh Church of Christ. 8701 Falls of Neuse Road. ( For directions to the church, see http://www.nrcoc.org/AboutUs/directions.html ) Since the workshops are not intended to be specific to the area in which they are being held, you don't need to live in this area to be able to contribute to the process.

Last night, I attended the workshop in West Raleigh. After a presentation about the plan process and about current conditions in of Raleigh, the audience was divided into groups to evaluate the description of current conditions, the proposed vision for Raleigh and the "themes" of the plan. Participants can also comment on anonymous forms that address these questions. I found the discussions very useful and enlightening.
If you can't make tonight's workshop, city planners said that the presentation with an online comment form will be at the plan website soon.
