Bike-In Dinner & A Movie Benefit for I-books Move

michelle's picture

On Saturday, August 30th bike-in to check out Internationalist Bookstore’s soon-to-be new space in Carrboro at 101 Lloyd St.  All proceeds go to help Internationalist move to the new space and build new bookshelves.  At 7 p.m., we’ll be serving a home-cooked Southern dinner including mashed potatoes with local mushroom gravy, hoppin’ john, and sauteed collared greens (all vegan), and lemon balm iced tea.  There will be popcorn and other concessions available.  The movie will start promptly at 8 p.m.  We’re asking each person for a suggested donation of $20 but whatever you can give is appreciated.  Members of Piedmont Earth First! and friends of Ibooks are hosting this event out of appreciation for the many years Internationalist has allowed us to host free events in their space.  Spread widely!

“This move is a huge undertaking, and a huge leap of faith. We need our community’s support to make this move successful. Please donate whatever you can to pay for the costs of renovations, new bookshelves and furniture, and to help us weather the financial impact of a big move and establish ourselves firmly in our new home. We also want to invite our community to help with workdays in the new space, help us spread the word, and help us with a vision for our new space and the amazing ways our work can grow through this move.”

Legion Road Project Loses Out on Affordable Housing Tax Credit

Molly De Marco's picture

In November 2013, the Chapel Hill Town Council voted 7-1 to sell 8.5 acres of town-owned land on Legion Road to Durham-based affordable housing developer, DHIC, Inc, for $100 (the property was valued at $2 million) for the development of 170 units of affordable housing. One of the steps in that development was the need for DHIC to apply for tax credits from the North Carolina Housing Finance Agency to assist with funding for the development.

Glen Lennox Public Information Meeting

Travis Crayton's picture

 

Public information meetings on the proposed Glen Lennox Development Agreement are scheduled for noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 29, and 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 30, in Room A of the Chapel Hill Public Library, 100 Library Drive.

Participants will receive information about the Draft Glen Lennox Development Agreement and have an opportunity to ask questions and give input. The community comments that are gathered will be shared with the Town Council in advance of its work session on May 5.

The format of these two meetings will be identical; the purpose of holding two meetings is to provide multiple opportunities for participants to attend and provide their input.

If adopted by Council, the agreement will guide future development of the Glen Lennox apartment and commercial property, an area bound by NC 54 on the south, Brandon Road to the north, Hamilton Road to the east, and US 15-501 to the west.

The portion of the neighborhood that is addressed by the draft development agreement is referred to as the Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood Conservation District-8C (CD-8C).

A development agreement is a unique planning tool useful for large projects that will be built over a period of up to 20 years. It provides the developer a level of certainty about what it can build and what mitigation measures will be required, if agreement is reached. It also provides the Town with the opportunity to look at the long-term horizon and make sure it fits with the Town's comprehensive planning efforts and local policies.
