Future Focus is a three day event planned for February 15th and 16th at the Friday Center with a follow up workshop to be held on February 23rd. It will be an interactive and dynamic planning process unlike any other had so far in Chapel Hill. We encourage you to save the dates.
I’m excited about the hands-on Visual Preference Activity scheduled and the small breakout groups where participants can imagine new and different places. That input will form the basis for illustrative examples of what growth might look like in different areas of Town to be presented on the 23rd. Another element of Future Focus that should be helpful, especially for the Community Prosperity group, is the Fiscal Estimation Model. This tool predicts revenues and expenditures for the Town by relating local factors to the characteristics of various development types and land use patterns explored during the event.
In order to provide good direction for the 2020 theme groups, the new Comprehensive Plan, and utlimately the future of Chapel Hill, Future Focus needs maximum attendance. So come, participate, inform, and learn at
