PUBLIC INFORMATION MEETING
Blue Hill District Design Guidelines
Help us improve the framework for walkable urban design in the Blue Hill District of Chapel Hill (formerly the Ephesus/Fordham District). Come learn and share your ideas!
The Town of Chapel Hill is developing a set of Design Guidelines for new projects in the Blue Hill District, covering key topics such as streetscape and public realm, pedestrian connectivity, outdoor amenity space, transitions between sites, building mass, and building elements.
The Design Guidelines are accompanied by a set of proposed updates to the District's development rules (Form-Based Code). These updates will facilitate implementation of the design guidelines and improve the predictability of outcomes for the community.
This public information meeting offers a chance to learn about the final draft of the Design Guidelines and the draft text amendments that would update development rules. Town staff welcomes your input as we finalize these materials for Commission and Town Council review.
The schedule for the evening is as follows:
6:00pm Open House with stations on design topics
6:15pm Presentation on text amendments
6:45pm Open House continues

The latest draft of the Design Guidelines, along with a summary of draft text amendments, will be posted to the project website in late February
