This Week in Orange Politics: April 20-26

It’ll be another busy week for Orange County’s elected bodies this week. The Hillsborough Town Board and county commissioners will hold a joint meeting covering an array of subjects from transit to economic development, while the commissioners will talk solid waste and the potential 2016 bond referendum earlier in the week.

The Carrboro Alderfollks will review the progress of the town’s parking management plan, while the Chapel Hill Town Council will hear comments on proposed changes to the Ephesus-Fordham form-based code district.

The Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board will consider its policy on weapons and work on revising the calendars for upcoming school years, while the Orange County School Board will have a meeting of its policy committee. Details on that have not been released.

Don’t forget to join us for our rescheduled editors meeting Thursday at the Looking Glass.
