The Community Workshop was held on Saturday morning, May 18, at the Chapel Hill Public Library. The purpose of this Workshop was to gain community feedback to the Planning Principles and Concept Maps which are under development by the Central West Steering Committee.
The first big activity was a ranking exercise of principles and objectives that are to guide the final recommendations to the Town Council. Staff report is here: Planning Principles and Objectives_For 5-30-2013 Meeting.
The second activity involved small group discussion of three concepts presented by the Consultant, including new roads. Presentation by consultant is here.
Participants were told that they could review but not consider a fourth map which reflects the current zoning and land use pattern in the Estes and MLK area. A large majority of those attending voiced objections and felt a lower intensity map should have been presented for consideration.
