Wow! Thanks to the hundreds of people who showed up at East Chapel Hill High last night to kick-off Chapel Hill 2020 – what a great crowd! The open house was great. People gathered around to hear what’s happening in Chapel Hill, grabbed a snack from the PTA table and met their neighbors.

Meeting Our Neighbors
By 6 o’clock, the commons was packed full and the fire chief counted over 375 people ready to get down to ideas for Chapel Hill’s vision and themes to make that vision real. The discussion were energetic (some groups even took it outside!) and people began putting pen to paper:
Brainstorming the Vision for 2020
Table 1's Vision for 2020
Table 5's Vision for 2020
Brainstorming the Vision
Table 8's Vision for 2020
Around 7:30, we heard what a few of the groups were up to – and it was interesting how many of the same themes and visions came out of the different tables: sustainable, vibrant, interesting and welcoming – well, we’ll get everything summarized soon so you can read it all here yourself!

As one table summed it up, “Chapel Hill is a small town with a big footprint!” We’re looking forward to keeping this going, so please come back on October 6th!
