DESIGN Chapel Hill 2020 Newsletter Available

DESIGN 2020 With a dozen meetings associated with DESIGN Chapel Hill 2020 scheduled this month, it may be a bit challenging to keep up with the implementation phase of the Town of Chapel Hill’s new comprehensive plan. A lot is going on!

Catch up on DESIGN projects in the September 2013 DESIGN 2020 Newsletter.

Town Manager Roger Stancil says: “Adoption of Chapel Hill 2020 as the comprehensive plan was not an end point, but a beginning. Adoption was a goal accomplished and the beginning of a journey to our preferred future.”

Register Now for Community Input Sessions on Proposed Advisory Boards

As an outgrowth of Chapel Hill 2020, the Council Committee on Boards and Commissions has proposed a system of five advisory boards to support the Town’s development process. The Town Council invites advisory board members and interested community members to learn about and comment on this proposal in a series of community input sessions. These sessions will be held at the Chapel Hill Public Library every Monday evening from July 8 to Aug. 12, 2013 at 6:30 p.m.

The series will begin with an overview session describing the structure and goals of the subsequent community input sessions. Each of the following sessions will focus on creating a charge and scope of work for one of the five proposed advisory boards; Transportation and Connectivity Advisory Board, Community Design Advisory Board, Environmental Stewardship Advisory Board, Community Housing Advisory Board and Planning Board. For more information on which advisory board will be addressed at each session, please see the table below.

If you are interested in attending these sessions either in person or online, please register at

The time, dedication and hard work of advisory board members help build a successful community. These sessions are your opportunity to help design a focused, effective system for participation.
