Bookmark and Share  Due to the expected large turnout for the Thursday, Aug 26th CAC meeting, the location has been moved from Fletcher Park to Our Savior Lutheran Church at 1500 Glenwood, intersection of Glenwood and Aycock.  This is the same location where we held our informational meeting on August 16.

Special agenda:

6:30-7:30pm        Open House

Come learn more about the High Speed Rail and how the NC3 option impacts Five Points.   We will be there with information, along with representatives from the Glenwood-Brooklyn Neighborhood and the City of Raleigh. NCDOT is being invited.

7:30 – 7:45pm     High-Speed Rail Project Overview
Will Allen, Co-Chair, Passenger Rail Task Force

7:45 – 8:15pm       Findings and Positions

Rick Baker/Glenwood-Brooklyn and Carole Meyre/Roanoke Park

Our neighborhoods border one of the proposed corridors for high-speed rail. Over the last two months, residents have worked hard analyzing the project.  We’re now ready to report out  findings and opinions about the proposal. Carole is one of the founders of Don’t Railroad Historic Five Points.

8:15 – 8:45pm     Q&A
Phil Poe, Co-Chair, Five Points CAC
This will be your opportunity to ask questions about the high-speed rail proposal. It has been difficult getting meaningful answers to many important questions. We hope to have the right people in the room to answer your questions.

8:45 – 9:00 pm  Voting on the Project
Phil Poe, Co-Chair, Five Points CAC
This will provide residents of the Five Points community with the opportunity to take an official position on the project. Results will be reported to the City Council at the public hearing on August 31st.  You must be a resident of Five Points to vote.

See you there!
