Share Your Bike/Ped Concerns on Chapel Hill's New WikiMap

In case you haven't seen it yet, Chapel Hill has launched a new mapping tool to report bike and pedestrian issues across town. So far, there are plenty of issues that users have already reported, including unsafe biking conditions on Estes Dr Ext and MLK Blvd, inadequate pedestrian crossing lights on East Franklin St, and a laundry list of concerns around UNC's campus.

What We're Reading: July 10

Happy Friday! Here are a few articles from the OP Editors that we found interesting this week:

Hillsborough's "Confederate Memorial"

Next Monday, the words "Confederate Memorial" on the façade of the Orange County Historical Museum may move one step closer to being removed.

The Hillsborough Board of Commissioners next meets at 7 p.m. July 13 in the Whitted Human Services Center.

2016 Orange County Bond Referendum - For Schools Only?

This week's Indy Week features this article, documenting how affordable housing, parks, and senior services have so far been left out of the proposed 2016 Orange County bond referendum. 

I'm Running for Chapel Hill Town Council

Yesterday was a memorable day.  My wife Linda and I went to Hillsborough and I formally filed for the Chapel Hill Town Council. I’m in the race!

I am truly excited about the campaign ahead.  I intend to use it as an opportunity to meet and speak with as many Chapel Hill residents as I can. I want to learn firsthand what my fellow Chapel Hillians’ visions for our Town are. What they see as the opportunities we can take advantage of and what they see as the challenges that we need to address.  And what they expect from those who serve them on the Council.

Mapping the New Work on the Bolin Creek Greenway

Improvements and extensions to Bolin Creek Greenway have been in the works for years, and as Phase III of the project gets underway, the Town of Chapel Hill has released an interactive story map that will allow folks to track the project's progress.
