Charting Our Future – Save the Date: June 10-11
Show and Tell Sessions for the Charting Our Future project will be held June 10 and 11 at University Place.
The Town of Chapel Hill’s Charting Our Future project will hold Show and Tell Sessions from 3 to 6 p.m. Sunday, June 10, and from noon to 1:30 pm and 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, June 11, across from Alfredo’s Pizza Villa at University Place, 201 S. Estes Drive.
These Show & Tell Sessions will include workshops where planning and design ideas are generated and discussed by participants in order to knit together past planning efforts; provide cohesion between existing areas of development along major corridors; and look more closely as some of our gateways into Town.
On both June 10 and 11, enjoy pizza and enter drawings for gift cards to Silverspot Cinema.
Charting Our Future is a unique Town Project to hone the Future Land Use Map in the Town’s Comprehensive Plan, Chapel Hill 2020, and to rewrite the Town’s Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO). For more information about the Project, please visit ChartingOurFuture.info.
