The most important activity to hit town in 10 years is the creation of a new Comprehensive Plan for Chapel Hill, called Chapel Hill 2020. This plan will guide development activity in town for the next ten years. The process is designed to include as many citizens as are willing to participate and at any level of participation that they wish. The town reports 140 people have agreed to participate as Stakeholders – you could be one too.
We urge everyone to attend the Kick-off Meeting that will be held on Tuesday, September 27th at East Chapel Hill High School starting with an 5 PM Open House and 6 PM Stakeholder Meeting (that’s all of us).
We don’t yet know much about how this process will work, and we have lots of questions. But a Comprehensive Plan is a big deal in determining the future of our Town. That is reason enough to get involved.
There is lots to learn and know about this activity. You can get more information on the Town Website at http://www.townofchapelhill.org/index.aspx?page=1656. The current Comprehensive Plan can be found at http://www.townofchapelhill.org/index.aspx?page=592 if you need some light reading or have difficulty sleeping.
