Community Input Opportunity: Historic Town Hall
Residents will have an opportunity to share thoughts about a possible future use related to local history and culture for the Historic Town Hall building at a community input meeting set for 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 3 in the Board Room of the Southern Human Services Center, 2501 Homestead Road.
Organized by the Town of Chapel Hill Historic Town Hall Committee, the meeting agenda will include a brief presentation on the committee’s formation and work to-date, followed by a discussion.
Historic Town Hall at 100 West Rosemary St. was built in 1938 and is owned by the Town. The facility is currently occupied by the Inter-Faith Council for Social Services (IFC) Community Kitchen. The IFC is proceeding with plans to construct a new building for the Community Kitchen and will vacate Historic Town Hall in two to three years.
In October 2016, the Chapel Hill Town Council established a committee to consider the possibility of using the Historic Town Hall building as a visitor and/or history center. This committee’s work represents the beginning of a community dialogue about the future use of this building. This committee’s work will culminate with a report and recommendation to the Council in June. Options for the building will continue to be discussed with additional future opportunities for community involvement.
