Town Properties Task Force

The Town of Chapel Hill periodically assesses Town-owned properties to determine how they might be used differently to further the Town’s goals. In January 2017, Town Council established and appointed the Council Task Force on Strategic Uses of Town Properties (Town Properties Task Force) to develop a strategic framework and initial ideas for specific Town-owned sites. Council Member Michael Parker served as Task Force chair. On June 26, 2017, the Town Council accepted the Task Force's report, authorized the Town Manager to prepare a report describing how to implement specific recommendations, and dissolved the Task Force. 

See the Advisory Board page for information about Task Force membership.

Deliverables

June 26, 2017 Report to Town Council: Recommendations for Strategic Uses of Town-Owned Properties, including

Background

The Task Force’s work built upon and expanded a process that began in 2012 to evaluate Town-owned properties. Those prior efforts resulted in the Town re-deploying selected properties to advance Town goals as well as receiving proposals for uses of Town-owned properties. More information about those activities is available here.

Also in 2017, separate Council-appointed groups considered options for specific Town-owned properties. The Historic Town Hall Committee considered possible future uses of the Historic Town Hall building located at 100 W. Rosemary St. The American Legion Task Force began developing recommendations for the American Legion property that the Town acquired in March 2017.

The Task Force was charged with developing a strategic framework and initial ideas for specific Town-owned sites. This process included developing guiding principles for current and future uses of Town property and identifying options for use of Town property to further Town goals. Desired outcomes included achieving greater clarity in decision-making around use of Town properties and greater success in achieving Town goals.

The Task Force's work is more fully described in the report to Town Council.
