Legion Road Project Loses Out on Affordable Housing Tax Credit

In November 2013, the Chapel Hill Town Council voted 7-1 to sell 8.5 acres of town-owned land on Legion Road to Durham-based affordable housing developer, DHIC, Inc, for $100 (the property was valued at $2 million) for the development of 170 units of affordable housing. One of the steps in that development was the need for DHIC to apply for tax credits from the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency to assist with funding for the development.

On Monday, DHIC president Greg Warren announced that, because a document was missing from the application, the application had been eliminated from consideration. Because of the incomplete application, DHIC must wait until 2015 to apply for the opportunity again, delaying the completion of an important affordable housing project as we continue to face a housing crisis.

Rosemary Imagined: Second Community Review Meeting

Join us for information, conversation, and imagination at the Rosemary Imagined: Second Community Review Meeting on Monday, June 9!

The purpose of the Rosemary Imagined: Second Community Review Meeting is to gather community feedback on the revised draft concept and the revised draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan.

In April, we began gathering input and thoughts from neighborhood and downtown residents, business owners, community members, and many others about the three draft concepts and the draft vision plan for Rosemary Street. We received a lot of great feedback, and thank you to everyone who attended the meetings! We have taken the input and revised the three draft concepts into one draft concept and have updated the draft vision plan. We would now like your feedback about the revised draft concept and draft vision plan!

Two drop-in meetings will be held on June 9 and will be at the following times:

  • 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., with a brief overview presentation at 12:15 p.m.
  • 4:30 to 6:30 p.m., with a brief overview presentation at 5:15 p.m.

Both meetings will be held in the Sky Lounge at Greenbridge, 601 Rosemary St., Chapel Hill, NC 27516. The format of these two meetings will be identical; the purpose of holding two meetings is to provide multiple opportunities for participants to attend and provide their input.

For information about places to park when coming to the meeting, please visit www.parkonthehill.com.

Rosemary Imagined is an innovative community-led planning initiative that will refine our thinking of how Rosemary Street fits into the development and growth of downtown Chapel Hill. This goal of this effort is to develop a vision for the future of the Rosemary Street corridor that emphasizes the Town's focus on connections, choices, and community.
