Rosemary Street - A Big Idea
The Rosemary Street corridor was identified during the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive planning process as one of the five "big ideas." The "big ideas" are initiatives that embody the essence of the Chapel Hill 2020 goals and will serve as a beacon to guide the efforts of the Town and the community as Chapel Hill's future is created.
The big ideas for the Rosemary Street Hub states:
Create an entrepreneurial enterprise hub in the Rosemary Street corridor - This initiative would take advantage of the high-speed internet infrastructure in the area to encourage the development/redevelopment of buildings to house start-up and hightech businesses. The district would attract and retain the intellectual capital of the University to provide high-quality jobs and bring additional vitality to the Rosemary Street and downtown areas. This effort should be coordinated with the ongoing Downtown planning efforts.
