Thanks to all who participated in the Central West Community Workshop held March 1-2, 2013. This area includes Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and portions of Estes Drive. The workshop's purpose was to gather the community’s perceptions about the area and vision for the area, and to discuss elements of place-making (what elements help to create a sense of “place” for an area).
The Central West Focus Area was identified as a priority during the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive planning process due to the known development pressures in the area. During the adoption of the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan, the Council requested that the Town staff work with the community to develop a process that would provide an opportunity for more focused discussion that would ultimately provide the Council with additional direction for the area.
