INFORMATION:   Carrboro Connects, the Town’s Comprehensive Planning process, continues to move forward with task force meetings and community engagement.  Since the last report on October 13th, Council Members Seils, and Haven -O’Donnell have attended task force meetings and inspired members with their comments. Council Member Romaine is on schedule to join the task force at its fourth meeting on Thursday, February 18th.

 

The first community meeting was held on November 17 and over 150 community members, including task force members, joined in.   The welcoming remarks from the Mayor and Council really set the tone for an exciting and engaging session. 

 

Additional interviews with community groups, attendance at advisory board meetings, and plans for a speaker series have been underway. 

 

A power point on the work to date is attached (Attachment A). Scott Goldstein will attend the meeting on Tuesday to walk through the presentation.  A town-website hosted page is available at  <http://www.townofcarrboro.org/2389/Town-of-Carrboro-Comprehensive-Plan>; the interactive project website with full functionality for accessing project information and engagement opportunities is available at CarrboroConnects.org <https://www.carrboroconnects.org/>.
