Carrboro Board of Aldermen Preview: Make Zoning Easier for Residents, Businesses
Addressing concerns about the challenges of navigating Carrboro’s zoning laws will be on the agenda for the Board of Aldermen this week.
Tuesday’s meeting at Town Hall will include re-visiting conversations from October 2013 between local government, residents and business owners about zoning regulations.
The Aldermen will go over a report from those October outreach sessions. According to the report, residents expressed frustration about the difficulty of participating in the zoning process for the layperson.
They cited hard-to-decipher technical language in the land use ordinance, and a feeling of “disempowerment” among people not already involved in community politics.
Aldermen will also pick up on a previous agenda item regarding a proposed Safe Routes to School program. The idea is to encourage walking and bicycling to school and related events.
The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.
