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.
Calling All Chapel Hill Young Professionals and Millennials
Join Us for a Marketing Research Project
The Town of Chapel Hill Economic Development Office seeks participants on a research project to be held on Monday, Aug. 21, at Extraordinary Ventures, 200 South Elliott Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27514.
You share your ideas, and enjoy meeting with others over breakfast or lunch. Two sessions will be held from 8 to 10 a.m., and from noon to 2 p.m.
The core focus of the Commercial Development Strategy is to build the Chapel Hill commercial tax base and support sustainable job growth. A component of this effort has included storytelling- spreading the word about the great things happening in Chapel Hill, as well as our high quality of life and strong, innovative economy.
In order to better tell the Chapel Hill story, we need to complete some market research. We are looking to engage two informal focus groups of millennial/young professionals, and post-doc professionals to better understand our strengths and opportunities in recruiting (and retaining) a talented and diverse workforce.
The 8 a.m. time registration is: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/market-research-post-docs-and-millennials-tickets-36745465677 Breakfast will be served.

If you know others that might desire to participate, please feel free to forward this email. We have limited each group to a maximum of 25 per group to make sure we gather good information and participants have a chance to be engaged.
