Your Guide to the Ephesus-Fordham Renewal Plan

Last Monday, the Chapel Hill Town Council approved the Ephesus-Fordham renewal plan. Depending on what news sources and opinion columnists you read, you might have some understanding of what this plan actually is and does, or you might not. Since there has been so much spin around the plan, here's our guide to what the Ephesus-Fordham plan includes - and what the Council passed last Monday.

What do you love about Chapel Hill?

Did you know that visitor spending in Chapel Hill and Orange County accounts for over $160 million in economic impact ever year? Tourism is a clean business that creates jobs and tax revenue that helps keep our county the amazing place it is. I was appointed to represent the Town Council on the Chapel Hill/Orange County Visitor's Bureau at the start of this year, and am committed to increasing the economic impact from tourism over this year. 

To celebrate the great visitor and tourist attractions in Orange County, I'm headed on a stay-cation over Memorial Day weekend. I'll be packing my bag on Friday and won't return until Monday afternoon, but I'll never be more than 25 miles away from my home. I'm spending Friday night in Carrboro, will be visiting Hillsborough and Northern Orange on Saturday, and will be finishing up in the southern part of heaven on Sunday.

What I Would Have Said

Tonight, the Chapel Hill Town Council is receiving public comment on the Ephesus-Fordham redevelopment plan after public comment was delayed from Monday's meeting due to a lack of time.

I was at Monday's Council meeting in the hopes of speaking in support of the plan. Unfortunately, I'm unable to be at the meeting tonight where public comment is still underway at the time of this post. Because I can't be there to speak tonight, I'm posting here the email I sent to members of the Town Council expressing my support for the plan.

Orange County Southern Branch Library Input Session

04/12/2014 - 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Location: 
Carrboro Town Hall, 301 W Main St, Carrboro

The Orange County Public Library (OCPL) will host two community engagement meetings regarding the proposed Southern Branch Library.

The purpose of the upcoming meetings is two-fold: to gather input on the current proposed location in downtown Carrboro, and learn what library services are needed by the community.

The meetings will be:

  • Tuesday, March 25, 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Hickory Tavern, 370 E. Main Street, Carrboro
  • Saturday, April 12, 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m. at Carrboro Town Hall, 301 W. Main Street, Carrboro

“Unlike typical input sessions, these meetings will be interactive, creative and fun,” said OCPL Director Lucinda Munger. “Facilitated group exercises will be held to determine how people want this library branch to look and feel. And comments will be taken regarding the library’s location and activities.”
