Last night I enjoyed the Northern Wake Democrats meeting at Milton's Pizza and Pasta. City Council At-Large Representative Russ Stephenson participated to help answer questions people had about what is happening throughout Raleigh. There was a great turnout and it was nice to talk about some of the local issues that are important to North Raleigh residents.
Some of the topics we discussed were:
- North Raleigh parks
- how stimulus money is going to be used in Wake County
- the installation of parking meters downtown
- City of Raleigh water plans; where we are today with the water supply and plans for potential new water sources; how conservation and storm water control can mitigate the impact on demand for water
- how schools are impacted by rezoning
- the need for better and increased storm water control during construction
These meetings covering various topics take place the last Thursday of every month. The next meeting will be Thursday May 28 from 6 p.m. to 8p.m. in Raleigh at Milton's Pizza & Pasta.
