Regarding the April 2 editorial “Fussing, feuding CACs”: As a member of the Northeast Citizen’s Advisory Council, I am puzzled and disturbed by recent articles and opinion pieces that paint CACs as overly contentious and possibly unnecessary.
Raleigh is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States, and those of us in neighborhoods that are either being gentrified or “developing neighborhood density” with 24-hour gas stations, etc., proposed next to homes need a venue to voice our concerns.
Under these conditions, it is not surprising that fearful neighbors might raise their voices during a meeting about changes to their community.
Stifling Raleigh’s current conversation does not seem like a good solution to our growing pains.
Never miss a local story.
