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 public is invited to provide input to help guide the Wireless Master Plan and Ordinance. Comments on the Draft Wireless Communications Master Plan and Draft LUMO Amendment will be accepted until 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 16.

The plan is part of the Chapel Hill Wireless Communications Initiative (WCI), a Town of Chapel Hill project that will address anticipated changes in wireless technology and the need for regulatory improvements.

Wireless communications and the associated infrastructure are essential to our community as regards basic day-to-day services, educational, public safety, entertainment and business needs.

The public process will provide Chapel Hill the necessary road map and guidelines to facilitate improvements to the Town’s wireless communications facilities.
