From Russ Stephenson. Please read through this important message. And then record your 2 minute message.
Last week we had an overwhelming turnout for the public hearing on the United Development Ordinance (UDO) remapping. Many were not able to get into the Council chambers, or even sign up to be heard. The public hearing was extended to July 21st and has now been moved to Fletcher Opera Theater, in the Duke Energy Center at 6:00 pm to accommodate a bigger crowd. At this time, only those who signed up originally will be allowed to speak, however I intend to make a motion as we begin that night that anyone who shows be allowed to speak with time permitting.
This is the most extensive re-write of our zoning code in over 50 years and your opinion is critical for us to get it right. Because there are 50 speakers already signed up, and many may not be able to make it out again, I am going to conduct a virtual public hearing. All you have to do is record your two minute opinion on your smartphone, and then either post it on my Facebook Page (or post to YouTube, Instagram or somewhere else and e-mail the link to me at Russ@RussForRaleigh.com) and I will share them with my colleagues. While you are there, like and follow Russ for Raleigh to join the conversation and view the virtual public hearing videos in your newsfeed.
Raleigh did not become the best place to live, work and play in America by accident. It took vision and leadership from our entire community, and your participation is indispensable on this very important issue. Please share this with anyone you know who has concerns or opinions on the UDO and remapping.
Thank you for loving Raleigh enough to take the time to share your concerns. Together, we will get this right.
