Here is my email and the attached letter sent to Mayor Nancy McFarlane, members of the Raleigh City Council, and members of the city staff and the state's DOA staff today.
To: Members of the Raleigh City Council and staff of the City of Raleigh, Gail Smith, City Clerk's office,
Ruffin Hall, City Manager
Please see my original request to speak at the meeting on Tuesday of the Raleigh City Council sent by email on Monday. I am attaching a letter which provides a detailed explanation of why I had planned to speak.
The City Council's Agenda as posted on the City of Raleigh web site does not accurately reflect my request. I had planned to focus on the lack of transparency in the planning process and to ask when or if the City would hold hearings on the question of the future of the Dix Hospital Campus property.
