Chapel Hill Town Council Adopts Comprehensive Plan

Jeff Miles's picture
Unsurprisingly, the Chapel Hill Town Council unanimously (I think) adopted the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan earlier tonight. Despite the objections of many citizens on a number of fronts and the reluctance of some of the council members themselves, the process will now exit the extensive community input phase and enter a period of “continued engagement.” 

Though it’s unclear at this point what form that community involvement will take—from what the planning staff said tonight it appears it will mostly be small area meetings—it’s clear that if nothing else, the process has stirred people to get involved in ways that may have not been before.

For now, check out the live tweets of tonight’s from me (using the OrangePolitics handle) and others and look forward to my thoughts on the process as a whole in form of a commentary on the Process and Outreach Summary that appears as part of the plan and a sort of compendium of all I’ve written thus far on the process.
