Paid or Free Parking? Which one?

It's the age old debate. At least around these parts. Which Town parking policy is the best idea? Paid parking in Chapel Hill or free parking in Carrboro? Which policy is working better?

MY FINAL BLOG: NOT THE NEW KID IN TOWN

Hi all,  this will be my final blog during the rest of the  election season. I have  enjoyed attending CHTC  meetings   during the last 2.5 years. Since moving here I have been  vocal on a number of town issues that have not received the attention it deserved . I have voiced an opinion from the cell phone ban which I was in favored  of, I wanted a private investigator for the Yates  Building   incident , which the CHTC  shot down, I felt that the signs for the bus ads which were STOP AID TO ISREAL were politically incorrect, and happy that CHTC change it to their current policy on the issue . I sat through the Rogers Road and other community issues as well, Such as Obey Creek, Central West, the Ram Plaza area, and Glen Lennox. I sat through town ordinances evaluation such as the food truck issue. So therefore im not  exactly the new kid in town. In conclusion I hope you consider all the above when choosing to vote for me in this years election. Thank you. Gary Kahn The above is from election of 2013

Solarize Carrboro: kickstarting home solar

Remember when getting solar power for your home was either too expensive or too complicated? Well, times have changed. The price of solar panels has dropped more than 80% in the past five years. Locally, solar has zoomed ahead and North Carolina ranks 5th in the Nation in solar installations. 
                                                                                                                                                                                                               
All this growth has brought about new ways to get solar power at your home. The non-profit Solarize Carrboro project brings together bulk discounts, affordable financing, and a streamlined process to make it easy for you to go solar. One of the goals of the project is to help you take advantage of all the incentives out there so you can get solar power for less than what you are paying your utility.
