Just read your article on CAC's and it was right on - - particularly the part where the City of Raleigh "seems" to encourage its citizens to get involved and then when one does they hit a huge wall of bureacracy and inertia that leaves one feeling totally deflated.
I live in a CAC downtown, am a former CAC co-chair, and now am a committee co-chair trying to get some traffic/pedestrian issues resolved. We've been trying to get these changes made since 2001 and it is very hard. It seems that one needs to become a fervent politcal activist to get anywhere with the city. It is very discouraging and many people just throw their hands up and give up. Then new people come along and try and keep encountering the same resistance over and over.
