Over the two years, Chapel Hill has gone through an extensive process to restructure our advisory boards and commissions. The main focus of this work has been to simplify the development review process, and has led to the creation of four major boards that will review development proposals (Planning Commission, Transportation and Connectivity Advisory Board, Environmental Stewardship Advisory Board, and Housing Advisory Board). The town will be making appointments to these four boards this spring, and we need community members to step up and serve to help move our community forward. The town also has a number of vacancies on existing boards that may be filled this spring.
The application to apply for the new boards is April 25th in order to be considered for appointment this cycle. I've been serving on the Council Committee on Committees (as I fondly call it) for about 9 months, and I'm excited about the potential for these new boards to help shape our community in the future. But the boards will only be as good as the citizens who are serving on them, so apply today!
