Chapel Hill 2020 Comprehensive Planning Begins

Chapel Hill Town Council has initiated a comprehensive planning process called Chapel Hill 2020.  The final product is a new Comprehensive Plan for the Town. The process is designed to engage not only as many of the Town’s citizens as possible, but also business owners and those who, while not Chapel Hill taxpayers, are part of the unincorporated town.   The kick-off visioning meeting  included over 300 participants.  Participant input was sorted into six theme groups in which citizens are invited to participate to discuss the issues and outcomes residents desire in the plan.  A meeting schedule is found here.  The Town is encouraging citizen participation at any stage of the approximately six month process, in person at the theme group or report out meetings or on the Town’s Blog called 2020Buzz.

Comprehensive Plan Opportunity to get Involved

The Town website has the latest information on the process to develop a new Comprehensive Plan to determine the shape of future growth in Chapel Hill.  If you are interested in participating in the process, sign up as a stakeholder.

The process for developing the new Comprehensive Plan has not yet been worked out.  The initiating committee will make recommendations to the Council about how the process will work.

Comprehensive Plan Meeting on April 7th.

Town Council will meet again at 6:30 on Thursday, April 7 at the Hargraves Community Center, 216 North Roberson St. to continue the discussion of the composition of the Comprehensive Plan Initiating Committee.  If Council expects to constitute the Initiating Committee and have them define the Comprehensive Plan process prior to their summer adjournment, this will have to move very quickly.  If you have an interest in Chapel Hill’s development for the next 10 years, you need to get on board now.
