Central West Focus Area

The Central West Focus Area is one of the focus areas that was identified in the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan. In December of 2012, a Central West Focus Area Steering Committee was established by the Town Council.

Since that time, the Steering Committee has been working with Town staff, a consulting team, and community members to develop recommendations about the form, use, and intensity of the area.

Draft Principles and Objectives

The Central West Steering Committee has been developing planning principles and objectives that will guide the development of the Concept Plans and the Central West Focus Area small area plan.

The Steering Committee has received community input about these principles and objectives during the Community Drop-By Session and the Community Workshop and will continue to ask for feedback through additional means.

Draft Concept Plans and Transportation Options

As a part of the Central West Focus Area process, the Steering Committee has been working with Town staff and the Rhodeside & Harwell consulting team to develop Concept Plans and transportation options for the Central West Focus Area. These plans are in a draft form and will continue to be revised and edited throughout this process.

The Steering Committee has received community input about the Concept Plans and transportation options during the Community Workshop and at the Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market and will continue to ask for feedback through additional means.
