Speak Up about Downtown

You have probably noticed a great deal going on in Downtown Cary lately. 

We have the installation of the two roundabouts, the restoration of “The Cary” Theatre, the restoration of the Jones-Foy House, and work going on to install a waterline.

But it’s time for you to weigh in, as well.

Downtown in Progress

Across from the Cary Arts center is what Town Council and Staff commonly refer to as the “Opportunity Site.” Last year the town held a charrette to brainstorm and create a framework regarding the area – to guide how that piece of property will develop.

There have been some great articles written about this effort – some of my favorite are by the Cary Citizen:

Now it’s your turn

Citizens are invited to come to a public meeting that will be held next week at Town Hall – where Town Staff will present an update on the park and facilities that are currently on the plan. But most importantly, we want your feedback as we dive deep into creating a truly unique, remarkable and extraordinary destination.

    I’m wondering if we are being set up for group think. We have been shown over and over again the same layout from the charrette. Are there no other interesting or non-interesting competitors to this one sketch? We are all talking about this one concept, not the pros and cons of competing concepts. Where can out of the box thinking come from?
