Do you walk, bike, run, or ride the bus around Chapel Hill? The Town of Chapel Hill wants your feedback on the draft recommendations of the Mobility and Connectivity Plan!

The Open House Session for the Draft Mobility and Connectivity Plan will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 15, in the first floor lobby of Chapel Hill Town Hall, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Drop in anytime between 4 and 7 p.m.

The open house is drop-in style with no formal presentation. Staff will be available to discuss maps and materials during the open house. 

About the Plan
In 2016, the Town of Chapel Hill Planning and Development Services Department initiated this planning effort in consultation with Stewart Inc., an engineering, design and planning firm located in Raleigh, Durham and Charlotte.

The Mobility and Connectivity Plan outlines the steps necessary for Chapel Hill to become a community where bicycling, walking, and riding transit are safe and convenient everyday choices. The draft plan is an overall network exercise looking at bicycle, pedestrian, and greenway connectivity, along with transit stop access, throughout the Town. It includes a prioritized list of both short- and long-term projects to improve non-motorized transportation opportunities in Chapel Hill. The Mobility Plan will complement and expand upon existing adopted plans including the Chapel Hill Bike Plan (2014), and the Greenways Master Plan (2013).

Next Steps
The next several months will involve advisory board review of the draft plan. The plan will be considered for adoption by the Chapel Hill Town Council in October.

For more information, contact Bergen Watterson, Transportation Planning Manager, at 919-969-5064 or bwatterson@townofchapelhill.org.
