As shown in the plans that are online, the unit count and overall arrangement is identical to what we last showed the Glenwood-Brooklyn neighborhood. There are a total of (8) units, including the existing house at the corner of Glenwood and Jefferson. Each unit has an individual front entry and porch facing the street. With the exception of the existing house, all parking is accommodated in basement garages under each unit and parking access is from the rear alley.
The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at the Wesley Memorial Methodist Church located at 714 E. Whitaker Mill Road. Attendees can meet with the staff from both the City of Raleigh and W.K. Dickson, the engineering consultant, to ask questions and address concerns. A questionnaire was sent to residents in the Five Points area and those attending the meeting were asked to complete and bring it with them to the meeting.

Below is a picture of a water garden that was constructed in Fletcher Park to manage stormwater better. In addition to controlling the intensity of runoff, it captures sedimentation and filters out nutrients that can further contaminate the Pigeon House Branch Water Basin. It also has teaching stations where you can learn about different types of wetland plants and wildlife.
- · Do you have stormwater problems in your neighborhood?
- · Do the sidewalks in your neighborhood need to be repaired?
- · What improvements are needed in our business districts?
- · Are you interested in installing stormwater control equipment on your property and sharing the cost with the City?
- · Do you think a 4-way stop sign needs to be installed at an intersection in the Five Points area to improve safety?
This is the meeting you need to attend to let City administrators and officials know about infrastructure problems and opportunities in our community.
Trimming of trees around power lines in the Five Points area is expected to continue through the end of this year.
Notification and Contact information
If your property will be affected, Progress Energy will place a door hanger on your front door with information about the tree trimming program. If you have concerns, call the number on the door hanger and arrange a meeting with a Progress Energy representative.
- Trees are part of the natural beauty of the Carolinas, but trees and other vegetation are also one of the leading causes of outages in the Southeast. We must constantly work to balance aesthetic concerns with our responsibility to provide a reliable electric system for the 1.5 million households and businesses that depend on us.
- Progress Energy has obtained easements and agreements with local communities and property owners that allow it to build and maintain its power lines. This right includes managing vegetation, including trees that pose a threat to the reliability of the electric system (on or outside the easement).
- Maintaining trees and vegetation along distribution and transmission rights of way helps reduce outages and enhances safety for customers, as well as Progress Energy employees and contractors.
- Customers with questions or concerns about right-of-way or vegetation maintenance can contact a Progress Energy customer service representative by calling 1.800.452.2777.
A special announcement received from Carolyn Jackson, the alumni and development officer at the school. You can learn more about the school here.

It is hard to believe that another summer has passed and that a new school year is about to begin. Raleigh Charter High School is excited to open our thirteenth year in our renovated home at 1307 Glenwood Avenue.
We want to remind you and your CAC members and area residents that Raleigh Charter High School begins classes ten days earlier than the area public schools. Our students will visit teachers, attend meetings and purchase books during the day Monday, August 15. We anticipate longer carpool lines during the first few weeks of school. After that, lines should shorten and traffic should move more smoothly.

Crews continued to work on the new drainage network today, laying another 100 feet of pipe between Harvey Street and the Rialto. Also, concrete crews poured new sidewalk between existing sidewalk and the new curb and gutter from the Rialto to Fairview Road.
For the next few days, the pipe work will be the controlling operation for other work within the project limits; i.e. as the pipe progresses, so will the fine grading, etc. We are estimating that the drainage work for this side will be close to completion at the end of the week. The majority of the new drainage network is being placed while we are in the current traffic pattern, therefore work on the eastbound side will progress much faster that on the westbound.
Again, thank you for your patience during this construction project. We appreciate your cooperation.
