Council passes 2020 Comprehensive Plan, June 25

On June 25  the Town Council approved the Chapel Hill 2020 Plan.  Alan Tom presented our statement which requested a MLK/Estes planning area  which would look at a larger area than just Estes Drive.  The Council directed staff to prepare a plan for a process this summer and to bring it back for the Council to review on September 5th.

Earlier in April, the Town Council critiqued the concept plan for Carolina Flats, a plan calling for a hotel, parking and seven apartments designed for student housing at the corner of Estes Drive and MLK. View the materials, the concept plans, and the video hereWe said this project runs counter to the residential character of Estes Drive and would increase traffic and jeopardize the safety of school children and pedestrians.

Estes Neighbors have been discussing what kind of development they would like to see in the future.  Take the online survey.  We will send the results to the Town to incorporate in Chapel Hill 202o.
