The Carrboro Board of Aldermen is considering suggestions for making affordable housing more available in the area.

At a meeting Tuesday night at Town Hall, aldermen will discuss options that include re-examining open-space requirements; making some zoning changes; offering incentives to developers; and providing some assistance for first-time home buyers.

The Board could also vote to enter into an understanding with Chapel Hill to make it easier for the two towns to share fiber-optic infrastructure for high-speed internet.

Another item on Tuesday’s agenda is a vote on whether to make school athletic facilities available for local government-sponsored youth athletics and recreational activities.

The Carrboro Board of Aldermen meets at 7:30 at Town Hall, located at 301 West Main Street.
