The Carrboro Board of Aldermen will vote tonight on whether to ban drive-through windows at all Carrboro businesses, with the exception of pharmacies.

Drive-throughs are banned downtown already, but a resolution being considered tonight would ban them in other areas such as Highway 54.

This has been a subject of lively discussion recently, both among the alderpersons and members of the public weighing in on social media.

Opponents of the ban say that it would hurt parents of young children, people with disabilities, and businesses.

Public comments will be received before a vote is taken.

The meeting takes place at 7:30 at Carrboro Town Hall, located at 301 West Main Street in Carrboro.
