“I talk to people all the time about how the Carrboro that we see around us today is a result of policy decisions — including zoning decisions — that were made 30, 40, 50 years ago.

We need to be thinking ahead so that we can be more resilient when things like big spurts and growth happen in our region.

Zoning has historically been used as a tool of exclusion, not as a tool of inclusion. I think one of the challenges that we want to tackle in Carrboro is using zoning to include people and to do some repair work on exclusionary zoning.”
