After many complaints, the planning department has announced they are still taking comments on the comprehensive plan. If you are interested in helping shape Raleigh’s future, you have a second chance to do that by submitting your input. The Planning department announced the change on their website:
Attention: The deadline for submitting comments to the draft Comprehensive Plan has been extended to February 28, 2009. All comments received by January 31, 2009 will be considered as part of the revised draft for the March 2009 Public Hearing. Comments received after January 31, 2009 will be documented and presented at the March 2009 Public Hearing as a special report. The City Council and Planning Commission will consider the revised Comprehensive Plan draft and comments received after January 31, 2009.
Tomorrow many of the centrally located CAC’s will hold a meeting in the City Council Chamber to discuss and review the comprehensive plan update. If you live in one of the areas listed below, tomorrow is a good chance to connect with others in your community and see how they feel about the proposed changes in Raleigh’s future.
