FLOODED TUNNEL ON BOLIN CREEK 

Bolin Creek rose quickly (about two feet in an hour from more than two inches of rain) when a severe thunderstorm passed through Chapel Hill Thursday afternoon. This photo shows the tunnel under Pritchard Avenue Extension near Umstead Drive flooded. #DidYouKnow: the tunnel was sprayed with a special protectant for this very circumstance so the artwork isn’t damaged.

Get Out and Meet Your Neighbors Tuesday, Aug. 7

The Chapel Hill Police and Fire Departments will participate in the 35th annual National Night Out Tuesday, Aug. 7. The community is encouraged to join in this relationship-building celebration: head out into the neighborhood and meet your neighbors and community safety officials.

“A strong relationship with your neighbors can be extremely helpful in a variety of situations, and it’s important to start with introductions and a good foundation,” said Chapel Hill Police Chief and Executive Director for Community Safety Chris Blue. “Turn on your front porch light, lock your doors, and head out into the community. Our officers look forward to meeting you.”

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live.

The Chapel Hill Police Department is sending an officer to each of the public housing communities this year. If your neighborhood is hosting an event and would like an officer to swing by, call the Chapel Hill Police Department before close of business Monday, Aug. 6, at 919-968-2760 to make the request.

Media Contact: Ran Northam, community safety communications specialist, rnortham@townofchapelhill.org or 919-969-4878.

MOVIES UNDER THE STARS 

Movies under the Stars

Let the stars guide your family to a free movie with popcorn on Thursday nights this summer. The Town of Chapel Hill and Chapel Hill Downtown Partnership are excited to announce the return of Movies Under the Stars - a free outdoor summer movie series on the Wallace Plaza, 150 E. Rosemary St., in Downtown Chapel Hill.

Movies Under the Stars continues through August with different themes each month. Family-oriented films Coco and Beauty and the Beast are scheduled for Aug. 9 and Aug. 16. There is no charge for admission to the Wallace Plaza, which has space to bring your own blankets and chairs.

Inclusive_Playground_350 

Inclusive Playground Update

The Town of Chapel Hill seeks public feedback on the planned Inclusive Playground for Cedar Falls Park, 501 Weaver Dairy Road.

The project currently has two schematics available that show the proposed playground layout along with its relation to the surroundings. Those who wish to review the plans are asked to respond with comments by Aug. 24.

In the fall of 2016, the Town held public meetings to gather input concerning the possibility of building an Inclusive Playground in Chapel Hill. An inclusive playground is one that welcomes all children, including those with mental or physical challenges. These types of facilities tend to be larger than standard playgrounds in order to accommodate people with a wide variety of special needs.

The Town looked at a variety of locations, engaged the public, and determined that Cedar Falls Park would be the best location for the Inclusive Playground. We then engaged interested residents and used their feedback to develop schematics to show how the playground might look and function.

The Inclusive Playground project drawings will lead to a series of construction plans that will be developed in phases as funds become available. Before taking next steps, Town staff are checking back with the public about whether the drawings meet the community’s needs.

To submit your feedback, email comments or questions to bwebster@townofchapelhill.org. For more information about the planning process, visit the Inclusive Playground Web Page at https://bit.ly/2coFoeS.

The following routes will have additional service effective Monday, Aug. 13, 2018.

Updating the Bus Fleet

With continued investments from our funding partners (Town of Chapel Hill, Town of Carrboro and University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) and the Orange County Transit Plan, we have purchased and placed into service six (6) new low-floor buses over the summer, retiring some of the oldest buses in our fleet. We also have placed an order for an additional 6 buses that will likely go into service in early 2019. We anticipate placing an order for additional replacement buses in 2018 using Orange County Transit Plan funds, as we continue our work to improve service reliability and comfort for our customers.

 

Bus Schedule Redesign

Chapel Hill Transit route brochures are being redesigned to be more customer friendly and will feature improved maps, stop identification numbers (NextBus) and transfer locations.
