Hillsborough Street Parking Public Input Meeting @ West Raleigh Presbyterian Church | Dover | New Hampshire | United States

A public input session will be held Monday, January 22, 2018 at West Raleigh Presbyterian Church (27 Horne Street) to gain the community’s input on a parking study currently underway. This public input session will be the public’s opportunity to provide the consultants with challenges and solutions to parking in and around the Hillsborough Street district.

Representatives from NC State, City of Raleigh, Live It Up! Hillsborough Street and the consultants, Kimley-Horn, will be in attendance.

The goal of the study is to document the supply and demand for parking on and around Hillsborough Street. The study will help the partnership develop cost-effective strategies to implement in the short-term, but will also accommodate the city’s growth and economic development goals, the university master plan, and the goals of the Wake Transit Plan.

The study will also develop a set of strategic scenarios that will evaluate the effectiveness of potential improvements to parking access, user experience, and safety while supporting the mobility and economic development goals of the community.

The study is being funded by Live It Up! Hillsborough Street, the City of Raleigh, and North Carolina State University.

Light appetizers will be provided.

“KHAAANNN!” – N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences Shows “Star Trek II” @ N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

It is the 23rd century. Admiral James T. Kirk (William Shatner) is an instructor at Starfleet Academy and feeling old; the prospect of attending his ship, the USS Enterprise, on a two-week training cruise for cadets does not make him feel any younger. But the cruise becomes a deadly serious mission when his old nemesis Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Mantalban) appears after years of exile determined to give Kirk a dirt nap.

Prior to the movie, beginning at 5:30, check out movie-themed science stations to learn everything you ever wanted to know about the science behind the Star Trek saga. After the movie, hear from a guest speaker to find out what “Star Trek II” got right or wrong, scientifically speaking.

This event features the A/V Geeks’ Skip Elsheimer guiding a fun night of trivia and tongue-in-cheek commentary on popular science-themed movies as well as samples from his vault of 24,000+ short films. Dinner (such as sliders or tacos), drinks (including NC beer and wine) and popcorn are available for purchase before the show.
