Harold’s Blog: The Hive, Cary Band Day and More

Monday I joined council members Robinson, Bush, Frantz, and Yerha for the ribbon cutting of the Hive. The Hive is a multipurpose space located in western Cary near McCrimmon Parkway and Yates Store Road. It offers activities for all ages ranging from arts enrichment to exercise and STEM programs. Birthday party packages are also available; however the space cannot be reserved for private functions.

Harold’s Blog: Fire Station, Town Council Meeting and More

This week’s highlights include a fire station groundbreaking and a regularly scheduled council meeting. My final meeting on Monday was with staff and a developer who owns property behind the shopping center at Kildaire and Maynard. In the past the developer has proposed rezonings, one of which included a storage facility, which were denied. He recently had a rezoning that was approved to allow certain types of commercial use. He explained that he couldn’t get interest in that type of development or from adjacent property owners.

Monday night I participated in a meeting of the Wake County Mayors Association. Nine of the twelve mayors were in attendance. The mayors of Raleigh, Rolesville, and Garner were absent. The CEO of Wake Med, Donald Gintzig, and the Senior Vice President & Administrator of WakeMed Cary, Thomas Gough, gave presentations. The theme of their presentation was the aging population and all they are doing in preventative and health care for that population segment.

Monday I met with a scout working on a citizenship in the community badge. He was accompanied by his mother (we require all minors to be accompanied by an adult). He asked several questions including: Why I wanted to be mayor? What are some of the town’s biggest issues? Our interview finished after about 35 minutes. Then I gave him a quick tour around town hall and the council chambers.

Harold’s Blog: Town Council Meeting, Lazy Daze and More

This was a busy week for me with a council meeting and Lazy Daze.

Monday I contacted all council members to hear of any questions or concerns about Thursday’s regularly scheduled council meeting. Most of the comments were about the discussion item on the proposed hotels on North Harrison. Council member Robinson informed me that she would be out of town on business at the time of the council meeting.
