On Nov. 26, 2013, the Town Council adopted the Central West Small Area Plan that was developed by the Central West Steering Committee. The committee worked with community members and residents from December 2012 to November 2013 to develop the small area plan.

The Central West Focus Area is located near the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Estes Drive and extends from Carrboro to the west, Franklin Street to the east, Homestead Road to the north, and Maple Drive to the south. For a map, please visit the Central West Small Area Plan webpage.

The Central West Focus Area was identified as a “future focus area” during the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive planning process due to the known development pressures in the area. The plan provides a vision for future land use, transportation, environmental, and streetscape decisions.
