This Week In Orange Politics: September 21-27

Though most of the Orange County's public bodies will be taking a break this week, the Chapel Hill Town Council will meet tonight to review a concept plan for new development on Rosemary Street and discuss several LUMO changes and special use permits.

Election season is also in the full swing. Be sure to join us Sunday night for our forum with Hillsborough Town Board candidates and check out our calendar for the list of other forums this week.

CHTC Candidates Debate Again

WCHL/Chapelboro, the Chapel Hill Realtors Association, and the Homebuilders of Durham-Orange-Chatham joined with the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber and Sierra Club this year to hold their joint forum last Thursday.

The forum, moderated by WCHL's Aaron Keck, was two hours of fast-paced questions and answers on jobs, affordable housing, transit, growth, and more. Our Storify from the forum is below.
