Final Draft Review: West Rosemary Development Guide

Post Date:03/09/2017 4:34 PM

The Town of Chapel Hill invites the public to view the final draft of the guide that will help shape new development in the West Rosemary Street corridor. The guide was developed through public input.

Two identical community meetings are scheduled on Tuesday, March 21:

  • Noon to 1:30 p.m. at Hargraves Community Center, 216 N. Roberson St.
  • 5 to 6:30 p.m. at Town Hall Council Chambers, 405 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd.

Please see for more information.

Why:  To establish a community vision for the corridor that can be used by the Town Council, the neighborhood and the development community when they are considering projects and investments. Please review this video for a visual narration about the project, this video for information about what happened at the first community meeting, and this video for information about what happened at the second community meeting.

Starting Point:  Creation of the West Rosemary Street Development Guide will build upon the principles and goals for the district reflected in previous planning initiatives, including the Northside Neighborhood Conservation District vision statements and Rosemary Imagined (illustrated in Figure 1 below).  Also included will be the recent economic development collaboration with Orange County and the University.
