Travel 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.
Town Council to Consider Adoption of West Rosemary Street Development Guide
The Chapel Hill Town Council on May 22 will consider the adoption of the West Rosemary Street Development Guide that includes an Implementation Plan (townofchapelhill.org/home/showdocument?id=35265) for next steps.
Vision and Dos and Don’ts
Northside neighborhood residents are working on a response to the Planning Commission’s request to create a strong value statement at the beginning of the Guide that states the community’s priorities for the corridor and the desire for innovative development as well as a list of specific “dos” and “don’ts” that summarize some of the strongest community priorities for the guide. The Planning Commission will receive this response at its May 16 meeting.
Attend a meeting or email the Town Council at email@example.com.
