The City of Raleigh will hold a public forum on Tuesday, July 29, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. regarding downtown parking and transportation issues. The meeting will be administered by the Downtown Parking Task Force in the city council chamber on the second floor of the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex, 222 W. Hargett St.
For the past several months a consulting team has been working with City staff and the Downtown Parking Task Force – whose members are appointed by the mayor — to examine parking and transportation issues in downtown Raleigh. The purpose of the study is to develop a plan for improving downtown access, including access to parking. At the public forum, the consulting team will present an overview of the study findings and provide an opportunity for input from the community before completing the report. This is a chance for citizens to see key findings of the field investigations and hear principals and strategies related to downtown parking and access that may affect future planning and policy decisions. Whether you live, work, shop, do business, or simply visit downtown to have fun, citizens are being asked to provide feedback.
