Public Information Meeting: Chapel Hill Historic Districts

Post Date:02/07/2020 11:17 AM

Interested in learning more about the Design Guidelines for Chapel Hill Historic Districts?

Come to the public information meeting from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Monday, Feb. 17, at Carolina Coworking, 206 West Franklin St., Chapel Hill.

The Design Guidelines provide direction and guidance to Town of Chapel Hill staff, the Historic District Commission (HDC), and applicants on the ongoing protection and preservation of the historic character of the Town’s three local historic districts: Franklin-Rosemary, Cameron-McCauley, and Gimghoul. 

The Design Guidelines set the standards for property owners and the HDC on what is congruous with the character of the historic districts by providing specific guidelines related to exterior alterations, changes in exterior materials, new construction, additions, significant site changes, and the relocation or demolition of buildings.

The public information meeting is part of the Town’s engagement efforts to help inform about new local regulations. Learn more at
