Carrboro Board of Aldermen Preview: Make Zoning Easier for Residents, Businesses

By Danny Hooley Posted March 17, 2014 at 11:29 am

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.
