Q & A with the Chapel Hill Transit Director

CHT Logo 

Fare-free transit service is a key amenity in our community. As a result of the Orange County Bus and Rail Investment Plan that Orange County voters passed in 2012, we are seeing improvements to our service with more to come. We ask Brian Litchfield, Chapel Hill Transit Director, some questions about those improvements and other issues surrounding transit in our community. Take a look and then share what you would like to see.

Process for Providing Sewer to Historic Rogers Road Moves Forward

On February 10, 2014 the Chapel Hill Town Council voted unanimously to pay their share of the preliminary engineering and surveying necessary to extend sewer to the historic Rogers Road Community (this would include 86 home lots). These activities are required for the extension of sewer regardless of whether the Chapel Hill Town Council moves forward with a utility district or ETJ. In addition to funding for this preliminary engineering work, the CHTC voted in favor of including funding for community outreach efforts to assist community members in learning about the preliminary engineering work and what it means to go forward with sewer hook-ups (see agenda item with link to staff memo here).
