The Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood has been designated by the Town Council as a Neighborhood Conservation District zoning overlay. The Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood was the eighth neighborhood in Chapel Hill to become a Neighborhood Conservation District; therefore, it is referenced as CD-8.

On October 26, 2011, the Town Council adopted the Neighborhood Conservation District regulations for the single-family portion of the Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood; these areas are referenced as CD-8A and CD-8B.

On May 26, 2012, the Town Council adopted the Neighborhood Conservation District regulations for the Glen Lennox apartment and commercial property; this area is referenced as CD-8C. On June 23, 2014, a development agreement was approved for this area which incorporates the NCD regulations; for more information, click here.

Background Information

On March 22, 2010, the Town Council endorsed the development of a Neighborhood Conservation District (NCD) zoning overlay for the Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood (which included the single-family portion and the Glen Lennox apartment and commercial property) to achieve the community goals of neighborhood protection and community benefit.

The Council endorsed using a Council-appointed committee structure to organize public input into the NCD zoning overlay development process. To this end, the Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood Conservation District Development Committee was established with the following charge:

"To develop a NCD zoning overlay proposal in accordance with the provisions of the Town's Land Use Management Ordinance and to explore the use of alternative neighborhood preservation tools to achieve the neighborhood's goals."

The Committee was comprised of neighborhood residents, Glen Lennox apartment tenants, representatives from Grubb Properties (the owner of the Glen Lennox apartment and commercial property), a representative from the Church of the Holy Family, a representative from an existing Neighborhood Conservation District, and at-large members.
