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.

Urban Bush Women Hair & Other Stories @ NCSU Stewart Theatre
Feb 9 @ 8:00 pm
Urban Bush Women Hair & Other Stories @ NCSU Stewart Theatre | Raleigh | North Carolina | United States

Since Urban Bush Women (UBW) burst onto the dance scene in 1984, the company has made an indelible mark on the field (and beyond) with bold, innovative and demanding works that challenge long-held assumptions about the power of dance.

Their latest work, Hair and Other Stories, is no exception. Celebrated Artistic Director and choreographer, Jawole Willa Jo Zoller, together with the inimitable UBW ensemble collaborate on a striking dance/theatre work which highlights the beauty and strength of the human spirit. Drawing on UBW’s visceral and thoughtful approach to co-creation, Hair and Other Stories uses humor, music and their powerful movement to explore self-image, race and gender inequality – all through the lens of hair, primarily that of African-American women. Deftly combining athleticism with intellect, the dancers gracefully pull the audience into the conversation. They invite you into their living rooms, their kitchens, their salons, and you can’t help but accept!
