Complete Streets Workshop on Nov. 17

Complete Streets in Chapel Hill, a community information session and workshop, will be held at 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 17, in the Council Chamber of Town Hall, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.

The Town of Chapel Hill workshop will use some fun activities to share and receive ideas on how best to incorporate Complete Streets principles and practices into the Town’s activities. Complete streets are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users. Pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities must be able to safely move along and across a complete street. Creating complete streets means addressing issues such as traffic calming, street design, landscaping, lighting and utilities to better enable safe access for all users.

Town staff participated in a Complete Streets workshop in April to learn more about Charlotte’s experiences and how their lessons could apply in our community. Staff then began exploring how current policies and standards can support and inform a Complete Streets policy for Chapel Hill.

The goal of the workshop will be to share information and to begin understanding what priorities the community has for the various elements of complete streets in Chapel Hill.

When: Nov. 17, 2010
