Snapshot of Assumptions

If you’ve looked through tonight’s agenda packet, you already know that the first page of the outline has a section for assumptions. 

If you’re curious about what we assume today, you can get a good look in the snapshot linked below.

Chapel Hill 2020_Fact Sheet_2-3-2012

Why would we blog about assumptions?  Well, they’re an important part of making our comprehensive plan a living document.  The assumptions – what we know about today and predict about tomorrow – are the basis for your goals.  When the facts change, our assumptions change and we check in on our goals.

One of the early directions from the Town Council, the Initiating Committee and the community was to make this plan real, make it responsive to changing conditions (remember 2007?  those assumptions changed!).

The draft outline has sections for assumptions, metrics and continual evaluation.  As our plan evolves, these kinds of check-ins will help keep it up-to-date.



One thought on “Snapshot of Assumptions

  1. Scott Radway says:

    I have re read the “Snapshot” 12 page document. The population projections on page 4 are at least 5 years old. More current information should be available for consumption and review by 2020 participants. A
    constant comment I hear is that Chapel Hill could not possibly hold another 15,000 – 25,000 more people. Please provide information about how many developments the Council has approved that are unconstructed/unoccupied and how many total dwelling units are in these developments. Also, please provide a summary of the developments in SUP applications and concept plans that are in the process and their total amount of dwelling units.

    Thank you.
