Housing Partners with UNC School of Social Work
UNC-Chapel Hill graduate student Alex Lombardi had an aha moment shortly after she began working as an intern for the Housing Department.
Public housing neighborhoods in Chapel Hill are surrounded by student housing. But the communities and residents don’t really mix.
“In Chapel Hill, public housing is so well integrated, that many students are unaware,” she said. “When you’re a student you’re in a sort of bubble.”
Now Lombardi wants to get to know her neighbors – and it’s because of where she works. She is the first student from UNC-Chapel Hill’s School of Social Work in a new field instruction course based at the Town of Chapel Hill Housing Department.
Chapel Hill Police Speed-Enforcement Initiatives
Travel with care and pay attention when driving, walking and biking.
As part of our ongoing effort to create and preserve a safe community in which to travel, the Chapel Hill Police Department and area partners will continue speed enforcement and Watch For Me N.C. initiatives throughout the month of July.
Officers may issue information, warnings or citations for anyone for violating laws. Fines and court costs for these violations begin at $213.
Multiple officers will monitor the following areas (in addition to normal Chapel Hill Police patrol practices) to encourage and enforce safe behavior from everyone:
- 8-10 a.m. and 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, July 11, US 15-501
- 8-10 a.m. and 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, July 18, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard between Hillsborough Street/Umstead Drive and Homestead Road
- 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, West Rosemary Street and West Franklin Street
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.
Chapel Hill is working to make the community safer for people who travel. Help us become a safer place to walk, bike, roll and drive. For more information, visit: townofchapelhill.org/gettingaround.
