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.
Public Input Session: Town Properties Task Force
The Town Properties Task Force will hold two public input sessions on proposed recommendations for use of Town-owned properties to further Town of Chapel Hill goals on Thursday, June 8, in Meeting Room B at the Chapel Hill Public Library, 100 Library Drive.
The same presentations will be given at each meeting; attendance to both sessions is not necessary. The first session will be held at 12 noon with a formal presentation starting at 12:30 p.m.; the second session will begin at 6 p.m. with a formal presentation starting at 6:30 p.m. Each session is scheduled to last about an hour and a half.
The latter part of the sessions will include a question and answer portion in which community members will have the opportunity to ask questions and give feedback on the properties and recommendations. That feedback will be reviewed by the full Town Properties Task Force on Friday, June 16. The Task Force will present recommendations to the Town Council on Monday, June 26.
