Planning & Transportation
The June 29, 2016, "Off the Rails" INDY Week piece by David Hudnall, which discusses the Durham-Orange light rail transit project (DOLRT) is a poorly researched opinion piece that does a tremendous disservice to INDY Week readers, residents of Durham and Chapel Hill, and—most importantly—current public transit riders in Durham and Orange counties who stand to benefit greatly from a significantly enhanced bus and rail transit network with DOLRT at its core.
GoTriangle invites anyone who works, lives, or visits Downtown Chapel Hill or Downtown Carrboro to take a survey to help evaluate transportation and parking in the two downtowns. This is important because parking needs have a major impact on planning our local and regional transportation infrastructure.
To participate, follow this link: https://www.rsgresearch.com/triangleparking
Individuals who complete the survey have the option to enter a drawing for a 16GB Apple iPad.
The survey will take approximately 12 minutes. Your answers will be kept confidential and will only be used for transportation planning purposes. This study is being conducted for GoTriangle by Resource Systems Group, Inc. (RSG), a national transportation market research firm.
Thank you for helping improve transportation throughout the Triangle region.
Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
I just received an invite to complete this transportation survery. Hope everyone does the same.

The Durham-Chapel Hill-Carrboro Metropolitan Planning Organization (DCHC MPO) is seeking public feedback on the draft goals and objectives for its 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan, which will drive future policies and decision-making processes for highway, bicycle, pedestrian, and transit projects in Orange, Durham and Chatham counties.
Residents and stakeholders can now review and provide input on the draft goals, objectives, and performance measures using a variety of methods:
The N&O ran a piece at the start of 2016 about the “new generation” of leaders in the Triangle. Missing from their list? Any “new generation” leaders from Chapel Hill.
But this omission isn’t the N&O’s fault. If you look at Chapel Hill, you’ll find that the town has a shortage of the types of young professionals the N&O was looking for on this list – and a shortage of the kinds of amenities and resources required for young professionals to succeed. How can we have a new generation of leaders without any of the next generation living in town? Why don’t we have that next generation in town? And what does it mean for the future of Chapel Hill if an the next generation is missing from our community?
With the elections behind us, Orange County's boards and commissions are getting back to work. The Carrboro Alderpersons' meeting may shape up to be an exciting one, with some in the business community requesting more information from the IFC about it's planned Food First Community Kitchen. The Chapel Hill Town Council will review several concepts and hold public hearings on changes to the LUMO and a special use permit, while the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school board will discuss how to use its assigned reserve funds. The county commissions will talk living wage and consider entering into a new interlocal agreement for "Launch Chapel Hill"
Both the Hillsborough Board of Commissioners and the county school board are on break this week. The Assembly of Governments meeting originally scheduled for November 19 has been cancelled.
