Join Chapel Hill Town Council Member Lee Storrow for open office hours to discuss your concerns in Chapel Hill.
I'll provide refreshments, just bring yourself. Come whether you have a specific concern, or just want to hear more about what local government is doing. Past conversations have tended to go in a lot of different directions, but am definitely interested in feedback and thoughts about downtown Chapel Hill for this gathering.
