Obey Creek Compass Committee

Print

Apply by June 10, 2013. Please see the Advisory Board and Commission Application and note the Seat Category for which you are applying. For assistance, contact clerk@townofchapelhill.org or 919-968-2757.

Purpose

The committee will review information, participate in scheduled events and serve as a conduit to the community for the purpose of providing information, soliciting community response and fostering community participation. At the end of the process, after review of a proposed conceptual plan for the property, the Committee will provide council with a report that identifies key issues, principles, and interests to be considered in the next phase of discussions and negotiations, to be used by council in deciding on next steps. This Compass Committee report will parallel a report by a Technical Committee that documents the results of technical analyses, a review of best practices, a summary of all meetings and workshops, and a set of ideas/concepts to be considered if the Town Council and Developer decide to proceed with Phase 2.

Obey Creek is a proposed mixed use development that, if approved, would be located across South 15-501 from Southern Village. It is one of two potential developments using the new Development Agreement process approved by Council in March 2013.

Meetings

The process should begin in June 2013 with appointment of a Compass Committee and a possible first Committee Meeting; The Committee will participate in the schedule of events until reports are presented to Council by the Technical Team and Compass Committee. Check the Town Calendar for scheduled meetings.

Members

Members of the Committee will be appointed by the Town Council. The Council will make every effort to balance the Committee in terms of geography for place of residence (with 50% of representation from people living within Town/ETJ to the south of the bypass and east of Smith Level Road, and 50% Town residents north of the bypass); and to balance the multiple community interests involved in consideration of the development of this site. The Committee will be facilitated by a non-voting facilitator appointed by the council. As a guideline, the Council will seek to achieve a composition for the Committee that reflects the following balance:
