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 info@rosemaryimagined.com

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!

Next Steps
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!

Review the draft Rosemary Imagined Concepts and draft Vision Plan!

Thank you to everyone who attended the Rosemary Imagined: First Community Review Meeting this morning! We had a great turnout and received lots of good ideas, feedback, and questions! We will be holding another session this evening from 6:00-8:00pm in the Sky Lounge at Greenbridge (601 Rosemary Street) – you should drop by!

During the meeting, participants provided thoughts and feedback about the three draft concepts (titled Option A, Option B, and Option C) and the draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan.

Draft Concepts – Options A, B, and C

The draft concepts have been developed by the consulting team from KlingStubbins, a planning firm located in Raleigh. These concepts are based upon the community input and feedback received during the community meetings held in the summer and fall of 2013 and from meetings with property owners.

Draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan

During the Rosemary Imagined community meetings, many participants shared visions for and ideas about the Rosemary Street of the future. These ideas were pulled together to create the draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan.

For a copy of the draft Rosemary Street Vision and Implementation Plan, please click here: DRAFT PLAN

The plan outlines nineteen visions for Rosemary Street and provides a vision statement, a lead, partners, and next steps for each of the visions.

We would like your feedback about this draft plan! Do you have ideas for implementation strategies or next steps? Would you like to be an implementation partner? Is the draft plan missing anything? Let us know!
