Learn about neighborhood improvement plans and city affairs. CAC members discuss community issues and take votes. Citizen Advisory Councils are nonpartisan and are the only advisory boards to the Raleigh City Council not appointed by the Council.
It's time to be heard.
The Raleigh City Council recently had a surprise vote, planned in secret, with a press embargo, and excluded a Council member that is a strong proponent of CACs. The vote was to defund, dismantle, and abolish the CAC organization. Fifty years of civic engagement, volunteering, and community building was wiped out over night.
The Glenwood CAC is having a community meeting on February 24th, at 7PM at the Highlands United Methodist Church on Ridge Road to discuss this and how we are going to move forward.
I have put together a brief video on youtube to make a statement to the Glenwood CAC with some background information and a call for our community to unite our voices and be heard.
Please take a few minutes to listen, and share it on social media with your friends and neighbors.
I want to thank everyone for the tremendous outpouring of support so far, and for sharing your shock and anger with me over City Council's actions, and how this was done. I also want to specially thank Highlands Church for their continued support and offering to let us use their facility to meet.
It is time for us to come together, talk, and let our voices be heard.
Thank you all.
Chair, Glenwood CAC

2500 miles of pipes. Garner to Wake Forest, Zebulon, Knightdale, ITB...
68,000 manholes to the sewer
What you do to YOUR personal sewer system affects the public sewer system.
The pipes from the curve to your home = your responsibility.
Issue with your pipe at point #2 = public utilities fixes it. Point #3 = property owner. Point #1 = public utilities.
Sewer easement = your responsibility
Before you call the plumber, call Public Utilities.
Then you'll call the plumber. He's going to charge you an arm & a leg. He's going to suggest to use a snake. Only going to last for a few days. Use a jetting cleaning service instead!
Don't put things in the toilet that don't belong. Toilet paper ONLY. It's made to disintegrate.
No to FLUSHABLE WIPES
No to diapers
No to pills
No to cotton swabs & balls
No to toilet paper
No to cat litter
No to feminine products
No to band aids, dental floss, or other things
Don't put grease, oils, or food down the sinks. It will cause your pipes to clog.
If you do any of these....you're throwing money away. Plumbers are NOT cheap.
Every now & then have a plumber come in and flush your pipes.

Agenda for the CAC meeting on Nov 26th:
Call to Order
Welcome and opening remarks
Community Reports – None for this meeting due to time constraints
Vote: Proposed Zoning Change (see below)
MODERATED PANEL: NCDOT, DEWBERRY, CITY OF RALEIGH
Joey Hopkins and David Stark (NCDOT), Beth Smyre (Dewberry), and Eric Lamb (City of Raleigh Transportation) will participate in a panel discussion hosted by the CAC to talk about the I440/Glenwood Project.
VENUE CHANGE: Note that the meeting will be held at 7p at Highland United Methodist Church (main Sanctuary)
Vote: Proposed Zoning Change
We will be voting on the proposed zoning change presented and discussed at the last CAC meeting. As a refresher, here is a brief description and a map for reference:
The subject property is located at 1209 Ridge Road and a small portion of the property located 910 Marilyn Drive. The proposed zoning change would rezone a portion (+/-.12 acres) of the Marilyn Drive property from the current zoning of R-6 (Residential-Six) to OX-3-UL-CU (Office Mixed-Use/3-Story/Urban Limited/Conditional Use). The Ridge Road parcel will retain the current OX/3 components and add the Urban Limited Frontage and Conditional Use Overlay. The adjustment to the R-6/OX zoning boundary on the rear portion of the subject property would align with the zoning boundary for the surrounding/nearby properties.
Moderated Panel with NCDOT, Dewberry, City of Raleigh Transportation
Key representatives from NCDOT, Dewberry, and the City of Raleigh transportation department will be participating in a panel discussion moderated by Robert Rice, the CAC chair. The purpose of the panel is to provide an opportunity to learn more about the processes and policies related to project design and development and address a variety of questions about the I440/Glenwood project that are unanswered and still a cause of concern for the residents of our CAC.
Depending on time constraints, there may not be time for open Q&A. If you have a particular question or concern that you would like to see addressed, please contact Robert at [email protected]. We already have a list of questions and will be aiming to get clarification and answers on a number of topics.

Listening Sessions Scheduled for I-440 Improvements
For Immediate Release

contact: Sean L. Williams
Listening Sessions Scheduled for I-440 Improvements
Area residents may now register
RALEIGH – In response to concerns raised by the community, the N.C. Department of Transportation is engaging in a new public input process regarding the I-440 interchange improvements at Glenwood Avenue and nearby roads, including Ridge Road.
Today, the department opened registration for its four upcoming facilitated listening sessions scheduled in September. Residents will have an opportunity to give the NCDOT a better understanding of their ideas and concerns about the project.
Joey Hopkins, the lead engineer for NCDOT’s Raleigh region, announced this new approach at a news conference in Raleigh earlier this month.
“This exciting new process will allow the community to be involved in the project from the very beginning,” Hopkins said. “We know how important this is for the community. We need access to your thoughts and feelings about this project, and these listening sessions will give us that opportunity.”
The sessions each involve small groups of residents meeting with a facilitator to talk about the project. Input gathered at these listening sessions, along with other objective project information, will be used to develop design options, which will be presented to the public for further comment later in the process.
The four listening sessions are:
• Tuesday, Sept. 18, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. - Martin Middle School, 1701 Ridge Road
• Thursday, Sept. 20, 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. - Ridge Road Baptist Church, 2011 Ridge Road
• Tuesday, Sept. 25, 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. - Martin Middle School, 1701 Ridge Road
• Saturday, Sept. 29, 9:30 a.m. to noon - Martin Middle School, 1701 Ridge Road
1500 Glen Eden Dr
|Monday||19:30 - 21:00|
