WATCH: Valerie Foushee on Public Service

Just wanted to share Valerie Foushee's new video on public service. It's a powerful look at how, growing up in Orange County, her parents instilled in the values of education and listening. 

If you like the video, I hope you'll share it with friends and neighbors. Valerie has been a great representative for Orange County and I'm looking forward to what she does in Raleigh.

Dream Up Downtown: Inspiring Innovative Spaces moving conversation

Molly De Marco's picture

Tonight, the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership held its 2nd of four moving conversations inspired by urbanist and community activist Jane Jacobs. This moving conservation, called Inspiring Innovative spaces, focused on existing and planned spaces downtown that promote interactions to spark ideas. Jacobs noted that the most successful public spaces are those with intense use nearby.

Half a Cent for Our Transit Future

Damon Seils's picture

In a February work session of the county commissioners, Chapel Hill mayor Mark Kleinschmidt took the podium to present a sweeping overview of the past 25 years of his town's approach to land use planning. Speaking with the didactic urgency we now expect from Kleinschmidt when he's both prepared and fired up, the mayor encouraged the commissioners to maintain their commitment to long-term planning for public transportation by adopting the Orange County transit plan.
