The manager tell us what we said

Today Chapel Hill's Town Manager will be presenting his findings from "listening sessions" he held with community groups earlier this year. It's at Town Hall at 5:30 and if anything interesting happens I will blog about it here.

Town Manager Roger L. Stancil will hold a meeting with religious and business leaders, the NAACP, neighborhood activists, Town board and commission chairs, developers, and affordable housing organizations at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, in the Council Chamber of Town Hall, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

This Carrboro Life

Thanks to former OP contributor (now Pittsboro refugee) Duncan Murrell for sharing this wonderful Carrboro-flavored spoof of Ira Glass and "This American Life." It was recorded by two local musicians, Tom Maxwell and John Ensslin. I have enjoyed many of their various musical outputs over the years, now I can enjoy their comical stylings as well.

You can download it from Duncan's site here: (6:36, 6.1 MB MP3)

Carolina North - The First Phase Soon To Begin

Soon we'll be entering a new phase of what some might call the never-ending saga of Carolina North. The last I had heard the University will be presenting its concept plan for the Innovation Center, the first building proposed to be built on Carolina North, at the September 19th meeting of the town of Chapel Hill's Community Design Commission (CDC).

Half page ads in September?

At this time a couple years ago there had already been two forums and an endorsement released in the Chapel Hill Town Council race. It's been comparatively quiet this year, although the forum season is about to heat up.

One candidate who to date was pretty much a mystery fired an opening salvo against the Town Council today. Matt Czajkowski had a half page ad in the Chapel Hill News on Sunday which criticized the Council for:

-Lacking a 'true voice' for fiscal responsibility

What about Alberta

I was out of town for 9 days so I had trouble following this.

Final agreement on the last set of conditions on the proposed Alberta project was delayed Tuesday night after a lengthy discussion by the Carrboro Board of Aldermen.

It's elementary

What should we call the newest elementary school in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro system?

The Board of Education for the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools voted Thursday night to use the same process to name the district's newest elementary school as they did when naming Carrboro High School.
