Changes to the Land Use Management Ordinance text for the Ephesus-Fordham district and the potential purchase of land on 101 Weaver Dairy Rd. by the North Carolina State Employee's Credit Union were discussed Monday at the Chapel Hill Town Council meeting.
The council also discussed dividing a plot of land on Legion Road into two parcels and heard concept plans for a new subdivision on East Old Oxford Road.
John Richardson, planning manager of sustainability for Chapel Hill, presented the council with eight different ordinance amendments that had been approved and recommended by an Ephesus-Fordham ad hoc working group consisting of advisory board members and representatives of the business and development community.
The ordinances included defining what constitutes a second floor, the length of street blocks and the width of a sidewalk clear zone, among other things.
Mayor Pam Hemminger said the meeting of the ad hoc working group was a successful collaboration and the item amendments were reached by a group consensus.
