Citizens Advisory Council (CAC)

Quoting the City of Raleigh website:

What are Citizens Advisory Councils?
In addition to serving in an advisory capacity to the Raleigh City Council on one of the City's boards, commissions or committees, citizens have another structured way to have input into the City's decision-making process through the Citizens Advisory Councils, or CACs as they are known.

There are 18 geographically located CACs, (View CAC Maps) which are responsible for reviewing issues of interest to their own community/neighborhood and expressing concerns to the City council.

The CACs are the only advisory bodies of the City Council whose membership is strictly voluntary.
