What is in the revised draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan?
The Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan consists of two parts:
1) The draft concept which is a map of Rosemary Street that identifies:
– Potential redevelopment sites along Rosemary Street;
– Locations of parks and greenways;
– New pedestrian and bicycle connections as well as long-term opportunities for car connections;
– And lots of other fun and neat things!
2) Twenty-one visions for the future of Rosemary Street. These visions include a vision statement, “next steps,” and leads and partners for implementation and are organized based on the themes from the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan.
How was the revised draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan developed?
In April of 2014, we began gathering input and thoughts from the community about the three draft concepts and the draft vision plan for Rosemary Street (for copies of these drafts, see below). We received a lot of great feedback, and thank you to everyone who attended the meetings!
We have taken the input and revised the three draft concepts into one draft concept and have updated the draft vision and implementation plan. We would now like your feedback about the revised draft concept and draft vision plan!
How can I give my input?
Please let us know if you have thoughts to share about the revised draft concept and plan! You can email or call Megan Wooley (Town of Chapel Hill) or Meg McGurk (Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership). Megan W can be reached at 919-969-5059, and Meg M can be reached at 919-967-9440. Both can be reached through email at firstname.lastname@example.org
If your neighbors or organization would like to meet with Megan and Meg to share your thoughts, please let us know, and we would be happy to meet with you!
We are currently in the process of gathering community input about the revised draft concept and the revised draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan! We will continue to seek community feedback about the revised draft concept and plan until the beginning of August.
In early August, we will begin working on draft concepts and a plan for Franklin Street, and we will be seeking the community’s involvement and input about the future of Franklin Street and the whole downtown area. We are anticipating going to the Council in late 2014 or early 2015 with the visions and concept for Rosemary Street coupled with the visions and concept for the whole of downtown.
Please stay tuned for upcoming meetings and events!
