A Balanced Transportation Network
The Town's comprehensive plan goal to develop a balanced, multi-modal transportation system that will enhance mobility for all citizens, reduce automobile dependence and preserve/enhance the character of Chapel Hill. To that end, the town works with the Durham-Chapel Hill Metropolitan Planning Organization, the agency responsible for transportation planning for the western part of the Research Triangle area in North Carolina. Working with citizens, the Town Council, and Town Advisory Boards, town staff develop plans and priority lists for new projects.
