MCAC traffic Committee Meeting - Update

Post date: Jun 4, 2010 1:55:55 AM

From Philip Bernard, Traffic Chair: We have decided to postpone the MCAC traffic committee meeting for this Saturday morning, June 5th, because I had a few initial responses that this time would not work for a couple of us after announcing the meeting at last month's CAC meeting.

For now, I would like to propose that we all try and attend the Public Workshop on the Capital Blvd Corridor Study. I think this will give us a good idea of how the study process will occur once they begin to study the Wake Forest Road/ Person and Blount Street Corridor in early 2011.

See details below.

City To Host Public Workshop On Capital Boulevard Corridor Study

The City of Raleigh will hold a public workshop on the Capital Boulevard

Corridor Study on Thursday, June 24, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the

new vehicle showroom at the Bobby Murray Chevrolet dealership located at

1820 Capital Blvd. Registration and check-in begins at 6 p.m. and light

refreshments will be served.

The first public workshop is being held to define the corridor study

area, identify key issues and opportunities, and refine the next steps

in the study process. A brief presentation of the history of the

corridor and a preliminary inventory of known issues will be given.

Afterward, small group discussions will be held to gather public input

on how best to transform Capital Boulevard into a vibrant mixed-use

corridor. Capital Boulevard serves as the primary gateway to the heart

of Raleigh and offers unique opportunities for redevelopment, open space

creation, water quality improvement, and transit.

Parking for the public workshop at Bobby Murray Chevrolet will be

available outside the showroom and in the adjacent Flea Market Mall

parking lot. To register to attend, go to

Special accommodations for residents with disabilities can be made by
