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.
Here are few things we've been reading this week.
I was just contacted by PPP and asked about candidates and development issues. Was anyone else called?
CHALT, the special-interest political action committee formed earlier this year, hosted the first Chapel Hill candidate forum last night at the Seymour Center.
It'll be a busy week across Orange County this week. The Carrboro Alderfolks will discuss bicycle-friendliness and the Lloyd Farm propery mediation process, while the Chapel Hill Town Council will get an update on UNC-related development. Both school boards will review the student performance data recently released by the state, while the Hillsborough Town Board will get an update on the Colonial Inn. The county commmissioners will meet with the Mebane City Council on public transportation and the Buckhorn EDD, and will get an update on Southern Branch Library in a serperate meeting.
CHALT and the Sierra Club/Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce/WCHL will hold candidate forums for Chapel Hill candidates.
In an unusual move, the county commissioners have invited comment on 2016 bond referendum—even though it’s not on the agenda.
