As a Joint CAG member for Chavis/South Park Heritage Walk/John P Top Greene, you'll help ensure that community voices are heard and represented in the planning process. By facilitating communication between Raleigh Parks and the community, you'll play a crucial role in creating a park that truly reflects the needs and wants of local stakeholders.
