Wake County to Hold Public Hearings June 6 for Recommended Transit Plan

With approval from the governing boards of the Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization and GoTriangle in May, the Recommended Wake County Transit Plan will now go before the Wake County Board of Commissioners for consideration. Before the commissioners vote on the plan during their regular meeting on Monday, June 6, they will hold a public hearing to allow the public to share their thoughts on the plan with the board.

The hearing will take place during the regular meeting that starts at 2 p.m. in the Commissioners Board Room of the Wake County Justice Center, located at 301 S. McDowell St. in Raleigh. Following the hearing, the Board of Commissioners will hold their vote on the recommended plan. Should the board vote to approve the plan, a second public hearing will take place at the meeting regarding the board’s ability to place a one-half cent sales tax increase on the November ballot. The board will then vote on this action after this public hearing.

Residents interested in providing comments at the hearings should sign in before the meeting starts. Anyone unable to attend can submit comments in advance of the hearings via email at waketransit@wakegov.com or by calling 919-856-5477. The Board of Commissioners meeting will be broadcast live on Raleigh Television Network (RTN) Channel 11 and on the Board of Commissioners web page.
