|Reports & Background
The Rogers Road - Eubanks Road Neighborhood (RENA), a community that straddles Chapel Hill and Carrboro, housed the Orange County landfill for over 40 years. Responding to advocates for environmental justice, the landfill closed in 2013. Today, residents are getting ready for new sewer service and to create a master plan for their area.
We have completed sewer system design and hired a construction contractor. Sewer construction is anticipated to begin in July/August 2017 and may last up to 10 to 12 months. In December, 2016, the governments of Orange County, Carrboro, and Chapel Hill authorized the expenditure of funding for the construction of the 3.5 miles of sewer.
The governments of Orange County, and the towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro, are collaborating on the effort, which is supported by the residents and several community partners. Success fulfilling promised amenities for the neighborhood was made in November 2014 when the Rogers Road Community Center opened. In May 2016, Rogers Road: Mapping our Community's Future, was released. This report is a compilation of an intensive 9 month planning effort with community stakeholders to create a shared vision for the Rogers Road neighborhood.
