Hillsborough-Wade CAC

May 24 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Hi neighbors,

Our monthly Hillsborough-Wade CAC meeting will be on Zoom, starting at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, May 24. The Zoom link is at the bottom of this email.

Keegan McDonald, with the City of Raleigh Planning Department, will do a presentation on Accessory Commercial Units (ACUs). As many of you know, the City of Raleigh is working on a purposed text change (TC-12-21) to create Accessory Commercial Units on residential properties. There has been quite a bit of dialog about what kinds of businesses will be allowed in these new ACUs. Keegan will give us the latest updates, background, and what’s being purposed during his presentation.

We will have a presentation by Ms. Libby Stephens who is the Program Coordinator for Housing Options for Students Today (HOST). The HOST Program provides short-term, safe, and affirming housing for any college student experiencing housing insecurity. This nonprofit is associated with the BWEL Foundation (https://www.bwelnc.org/host/), and they are currently in the process of promoting and recruiting for this program. Homes in our Hillsborough-Wade CAC would be excellent housing opportunities for many college students!

Shannon Johnson will tell us about a new promotional program with restaurants along Hillsborough Street that will have discounts on Wednesdays. Live it Up! Hillsborough is holding a $4 Food Walk for 5 Wednesdays this summer!  Restaurants and bars will offer $4 small plate offerings for customers to introduce locals to the diverse and delicious food and beverages available from our Hillsborough Street District merchants.

As usual, we will start the meeting with a police report by Sergeant Miller. We might end the meeting with a summary of current rezoning cases within our Hillsborough-Wade CAC boundaries.

Purposed Agenda:
• Police report by Sergeant Miller (or Kevin Taylor)
• “$4 Food Walk on Hillsborough Street” by Shannon Johnson

  • “Housing Options for Students Today (HOST)” by Libby Stephens
    • “Accessory Commercial Units (ACUs)” by Keegan McDonald
  • Summary of current rezoning cases (?)

The Zoom invitation is below.

See you next Tuesday evening,
