Cary sets ‘area conversations’

The town has scheduled four “area conversations” in June to hear from residents as Cary maps out its future.

The meetings follow the Summit on the Future, which drew hundreds of people earlier this month to talk about how Cary should grow. As with the summit, information gathered during the “area conversations” will be used to create the Cary Community Plan, which will guide growth for the next 20 to 30 years.

Reservations aren’t necessary for the meetings, which all begin at 6 p.m. Here’s the schedule:

•  Tuesday, June 4, at the Cary Senior Center, 120 Maury Odell Place.

•  Wednesday, June 5, at Embassy Suites, 201 Harrison Oaks Blvd.

•  Tuesday, June 11, at Crosspointe Church, 6911 Carpenter Fire Station Road.

•  Wednesday, June 12, at Colonial Baptist Church, 6051 Tryon Road.
