Public forum on downtown Chapel Hill

Via e-mail...

Downtown Public Forum

Please join the Town of Chapel Hill and the Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership in providing input into the planning process for the future of Downtown Chapel Hill. The sessions are open to property owners, businesses, residents and anyone interested in Downtown's future to meet with the consultants and share ideas and suggestions for Downtown Chapel Hill. 

 

Thursday, April 8

8:30 to 10:00 AM and 4:30 to 6:00 PM

Both sessions will be held in the second floor Great Room at the Top of the Hill Restaurant. The entrance is on the south side of East Franklin St., between Walgreens and Game Stop.     

The Town and Partnership have hired the Raleigh based consultant Kling-Stubbins to help craft a Development Framework and Action Plan Document which will help guide the Town and the development community five to eight years into the future.  Kling-Stubbins has partnered with Stewart Engineering and Strategy 5 economic development consulting to assist with the Plan.  The documents' primary thrust will be to identify strategic properties in downtown, suggest potential uses for the property and, with the approval of current or future owners, present a means to achieve the jointly developed plan for these strategic parcels.

Campus to Campus Connector follow-up workshop

Via e-mail...

Please Join Us for a Follow-up Workshop!


Topic:    Campus to Campus Connector 

When:   April 15, 2010 5:30-7:00 PM

Where:  Magnolia Conference Room

               

               103 Airport Drive

Chapel Hill NC  27514

 

This meeting will be an opportunity to show the data, photographs and information collected on the routes that were suggested at our December 1, 2009 workshop.  The materials from that meeting are on the website

 

We are evaluating potential locations for a greenway and bike path connection between the Carolina North campus and the Main UNC Campus.  We are seeking a pathway that is not located within the Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. roadway and that avoids steep grades where feasible.  It may include existing or planned greenways for a portion of the route.

 

There will be a brief introduction by Town and University staff to share the data collected to date.

The majority of the workshop will be spent in an open session, getting feedback from the attendees.

 

You are welcome to use the maps & checklists we used and to bring your own photographs and information to the session.  We want to hear what you think!

 

If you have a question for the Town, call The Town of Chapel Hill Planning Department at:  (919) 968-2728

 

If you have a question for the University, contact Jill Coleman at jcoleman@fac.unc.edu
