Town Council Meetings
The Chapel Hill Town Council will meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in Town Hall at 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. to consider an agenda that includes the following application:
Land Use Management Ordinance Text Amendment
Town staff has drafted an amendment to section 4.5.4 of the Land Use Management Ordinance. This amendment would allow projects on sites encumbered by a Special Use Permit to address documented health, safety, or environmental issues through an administrative approval process. This proposal is in response to Town Council’s request to create an alternative process for such projects so they are not required to apply for a Special Use Permit Modification, typically a 9-12 month process.
For additional information, please contact Becky McDonnell at firstname.lastname@example.org or 919-969-5054.
Blue Hill Stormwater Zoning Text Amendment
Modifications to the Blue Hill District Form-Based Code (LUMO Section 3.11) will be considered by Town Council in response to changes in State statute regarding stormwater treatment requirements. The proposed Text Amendment would create a development incentive option for projects in the District that provide enhanced stormwater treatment. In addition, a revision to the purpose statement of the Blue Hill District is proposed to include affordable housing. On May 22, 2019 the Council will have an opportunity to review the proposal and receive public comment.
For additional information, please contact Corey Liles at email@example.com or 919-969-5008.
The Chapel Hill Town Council will meet at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12 , 2019, in the Council Chambers of Chapel Hill Town Hall, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., to consider an agenda that includes the following:
Open a Public Hearing and Consider approving a Glen Lennox Performance Incentive Agreement
Authorize a Performance Incentive Agreement to Grubb Properties to encourage the development of office space in the next phase of development at Glen Lennox. After the Council approved a Development Agreement in 2014, Grubb Properties began to work toward implementing the adopted community vision as set forth. With a strong economy, growing construction prices, and a weak office market in Chapel Hill after the previous economic downturn, it is difficult for Grubb to commit to bringing the office product out of the ground without a minimum of 50% pre-leased. The Chapel Hill office market needs new product coming out of the ground on a regular basis for us to begin to compete regionally and regain our office market share. For additional information, contact Dwight Bassett at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 919 969 5010.
