mlk_bodyTravel Safety Initiatives

We want everyone to travel safely in Chapel Hill. The Police Department and area partners will continue speed enforcement and Watch for Me N.C. initiatives throughout the month of February. These initiatives are an effort to continue to preserve and enhance a safe community in which to travel, whether on two wheels, four wheels, two feet, or other methods.

Watch For Me N.C. is a statewide safety initiative designed to improve relationships on roads between people who drive, people who walk, people who roll and people who bike. People may receive helpful information, warnings, and in some cases, tickets for violations during these initiatives.

The Chapel Hill Police Department is taking additional steps to encourage safety among all travelers of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and throughout the community. You may notice an enhanced police presence along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. The Watch For Me N.C. travel-safety initiative scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 27, is being moved from South Columbia Street to Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard. You will also notice temporary digital signs along the road to encourage safe-travel behaviors.

A Maker Gathering will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 18, in Meeting Room B at the Chapel Hill Public Library, 100 Library Drive.

Meeting Schedule:

  • 10:30-10:45 a.m.: Maker Share
  • 10:45-11:45 a.m.: Visioning and Planning Meeting
  • 11:45 a.m.-12 p.m.: Maker Share

The Visioning and Planning Meeting will include identifying interest groups and beginning preliminary planning of a Fall Maker Showcase and community outreach opportunities.

During the "Maker Share" parts of the gathering, a handful of makers are invited to share/present their creations. Each presenting maker will be given a table (or other space if a table doesn't work) at which to set up his/her display, and attendees will walk around to the tables/areas as if at a "Maker Faire." If you are interested in sharing your work/creations at the March 18 meeting, please email Michelle Lewis at mlewisunc@gmail.com and describe what you plan to display and your space requirements.

All who are interested are welcome to attend this event! Register at http://bit.ly/2nfAuqz.
