Next Monday (February 18th),
the Chapel Hill Town Council is holding a public hearing on two major
planning documents for our town: the Parks and Greenways master plans.
As chair of the Parks and Recreation Commission, I can tell you that
this day has been long in coming. Work on these plans began over two
years ago, but staff was asked to wait until after the completion of the
Chapel Hill 2020 visioning document to submit them for approval, so the
plans could be as unified in their language as possible. When adopted,
they will be considered part of the Town's comprehensive plan.
