• Your favorite success story for 2022

It has been a full year for the West Raleigh CAC with both great promise, and events that have tested our mettle. The prospect of bus rapid transit is exciting, as it could open up new opportunities to get to downtown Cary and Raleigh without a car. At the same time, the zoning changes within the BRT corridor and those proposed to accommodate redevelopment will require significant community conversation to mitigate adverse impacts. We stand together as the West Raleigh Community Advocacy Council to provide a forum for civic engagement, a channel for our voices, and as a force of good will to help our neighbors and community members.

We’ve initiated phone calls, written letters, and have held open forums with our City Planners and elected officials. We’ve called to vote the zoning cases for Fieldspring Lane and Roylene Acres, and have shared our results with City Council. One of our own, Jane Harrison, has been elected to represent us in District D! It’s time to celebrate the successes we’ve shared together in 2022.
