The latest...

Here’s what’s happening now:

The Raleigh City Council will return to in-person meetings today. If you want to attend in person and you're driving, here's how to park for free. [city site]

The agenda for the 1 p.m. meeting includes: Changes to East End Market, more on the missing middle housing text change and an update on a new "community engagement framework."

Members of a study group on council terms/salaries and voter engagement/participation will also present an initial report. Those recommendations include: extending council member terms from two years to four years, staggering the four-year terms and increasing compensation. [report]

What else to know:

Duke Health now allows overnight visitors at hospitals, as COVID-related restrictions ease. Previously, only people giving birth and end-of-life patients were allowed overnight guests. [WRAL]
Editor's note: In Friday's newsletter, I mentioned the upcoming Noon Tunes acts, but got the genre wrong for the performance on June 23. The Noon Tunes June 23 is actually Norteño music from the Javier Montano Trio, not bluegrass! I apologize for the error.
