A Just Community

I recently filled out the INDY Candidate Questionnaire and I wanted to go ahead and start sharing my answers.  When they asked what I would do to build a just community in the Triangle, this is how I responded:

Rosemary Imagined Community Review Meeting

The purpose of the Rosemary Imagined: First Community Review Meeting is to review the two draft concepts for Rosemary Street. These concepts are being drafted by the consulting team from KlingStubbins, a planning firm located in Raleigh, based upon the community input and feedback received during the Rosemary Imagined meetings held in the summer and fall of 2013.

Two drop-in meetings will be held on April 10 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.
  • 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., with a brief overview presentation at 6:45 p.m.

Both meetings will be held in the Sky Lounge at Greenbridge, 601 Rosemary Street, 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.

During the meeting, we will gather community comment about the two draft concepts. The concepts will then be revised to develop one draft concept. A Second Community Review meeting will be held in late May or early June to receive community feedback about the revised draft concept.

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.
