Committee Room, 2nd Floor, Durham City Hall, Durham NC
I attended the "Special Topic: Making Transportation Decisions at a Local Level" presentation a smaller section of the larger "Sketching Chapel Hill" Series, and I thought that I'd share some details that were discussed by Martin/Alexiou/Bryson Consulting. The firm presented a 50 minute PowerPoint concerning both the CTP for the greater area, the Long Range Plan and the shorter 7 Year Transportation Plans for the area, followed by Q&A.

Luther King Jr. Blvd. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend.
The Special Topics series began during the Chapel Hill 2020
comprehensive planning process as a way to share information with
interested residents who want to know more about issues, trends and
studies that affect the future. For past topics, see http://bit.ly/zi4gLo.
Garrett Davis, a long range planner for the Town of Chapel Hill,
will provide an overview of the
various types of planning models the Town uses to analyze and
understand data related to future population and employment growth and
related transportation and land use impacts. Models help planners gather
and analyze information and predict possible future outcomes, based on a
set of assumptions. The presentation, which will provide an overview of
the current use of planning modes in the Triangle region and focus on
the use of CommunityViz, an interactive software platform that
integrates land use mapping and statistical analysis used by the Town
during the development of the 2020 Comprehensive Plan. The presentation
will be followed by a question and answer session.
Garrett develops analysis, Geographic Information System (GIS),
and graphic design projects to aid the Town's planning initiatives. He
also provides professional support to other Town departments and partner

Chapel Hill Town Hall Council Chambers (405 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd.)
Does anyone remember how all those charts and graphs of Carolina North never showed much about what lies outside the campus -- i.e., the rest of the town and county? I remember thinking, "hey, the world doesn't end along the MLK/Airport Rd. median strip!" Town planners seemed much exercised about the general town-wide impact of CN, but there seemed to be a general shrug about the impact on proximate neighborhoods except from the point of view of bus and bicycle lanes.
