Help shape land development rules for the Gateway Light Rail Station Area! This project aims to promote proactive land planning and the delivery of community benefits with the proposed light rail investment.
The Town is actively working to draft transit-supportive land development regulations to guide redevelopment in the Gateway Station Area and ensure community benefits. These regulations could serve as a framework to develop additional zoning districts specific to the other five station areas in Chapel Hill.
