mlk_bodyTravel 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.

The Parks and Recreation Department will hold a public input meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 9, in Room A of the Chapel Hill Public Library to solicit input on specific ideas for Chapel Hill’s future Inclusive Playground.

Children are welcome to attend the meeting, where they will have a chance to draw and design their own playground features. Feel free to come anytime between 5 and 7 p.m., as this is a drop-in style format. 

The Inclusive Playground will be designed as a place where children of all abilities feel welcome to play, and will be located at Cedar Falls Park.

The Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation Department along with design consultants from WithersRavenel will use public input to create a unique park destination with design aspects important for children of all abilities.

For more information, contact Bill Webster, planning and development manager, at 919-968-2819 or bwebster@townofchapelhill.org
