Join the Central West Steering Committee and your fellow community members for the upcoming Central West Community Workshop!
The Town of Chapel Hill will hold the Central West Community Workshop from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, May 18, with sign-in at 8:30 a.m. The workshop will be in Meeting Room B at the Chapel Hill Public Library, 100 Library Drive.
The purpose of the workshop is to gather the community’s thoughts and feedback about the draft planning principles, objectives, and planning concepts for the Central West Focus Area.
The Central West Focus Area Steering Committee has developed a draft set of planning principles and objectives that define the important elements to be considered while developing the small area plan for the Central West Focus Area. The planning principles include statements about the importance of connectivity, pedestrian and bicycle safety, identity/sense of place, mixed uses, diversity, green environment, and others.
In addition, the Central West Steering Committee has also begun developing different planning concepts which provide visuals of the locations of the different uses in the area.
The Central West Focus Area Steering Committee was charged by the Council to develop recommendations for a small area plan for the Central West Focus Area that would address the appropriate uses, form, and intensity for the area. The Committee is to work with the community, Town staff, and a consultant, and the thoughts and ideas developed from this process will form a small area plan which if necessary, will be developed into new zoning regulations for this area.
Please help spread the word about the Central West Community Workshop to your friends, neighbors, and colleagues!
