We are working together to implement all the great ideas generated in Chapel Hill 2020, the new comprehensive plan that sets a vision and a path for growth for Chapel Hill. Learn more about DESIGN Chapel Hill and help set a vision and a path for growth for Chapel Hill.
On June 25, 2012, the Town Council unanimously voted to adopt the Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan. The Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan, along with the documents identified as components since 2000, will replace the 2000 Comprehensive Plan.
The Chapel Hill 2020 comprehensive plan is a reflection of the values, aspirations, and ideas of the community. The participants in the Chapel Hill 2020 process envisioned a town that is accessible, affordable, and sustainable; asserted the importance of protecting the community's natural resources; and emphasized the importance of a vibrant downtown and active neighborhoods.
This new planning and visioning document has created a framework for the community and the Town in managing Chapel Hill's future.
