About CAPS

These certificates are required for new residential development by the Schools Adequate Public Facilities Ordinance (SAPFO). Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools (CHCCS) must approve a certificate before the Town can issue a Zoning Compliance Permit, which is required before the construction phase of a development can begin. The SAPFO helps manage demand and space in CHCSS (see CHCCS Capacity and Projections data). Annual reports with capacity data are produced by the CHCCS Technical Advisory Committee and provided to the Chapel Hill Town Council, Carrboro Board of Aldermen, and the Orange County Board of Commissioners.
