chapel hill

We are publishing statements made during the May 24, 2023 public hearing on the Town’s housing choices proposal.

As a longtime Chapel Hill resident who has worked for the university and in the nonprofit sector, but who hasn’t been able to afford homeownership here, I’m grateful for gentle density. For nearly a decade, I have rented a duplex surrounded by single family homes in Timberlyne, which has made it possible for me to remain in and contribute to a community I love. I encourage the Council to adopt the Housing Choice text amendment to make it possible for more people to live in and thrive in our town.
