You can weigh in and help shape the future of Raleigh’s Dix Park Plaza & Play project at the third public meeting that begins at 5:30 p.m.

The project will cover approximately 18 acres on the southern side of the park along Lake Wheeler Road.

The meeting will “explore the unique features and innovative landscapes of Plaza & Play through a large-scale physical model of the project site, renderings, plans, and conversations” with officials in attendance, according to the Dix Park website.
