To form the committee, the Chapel Hill Town Council sent fliers to those who live around Weaver Dairy Road.
Twenty-five area residents responded to the fliers and were put on the committee.
Fifteen committee members and a traffic engineer, who was appointed by the Town Council, met at the Chapel Hill Town Hall on Thursday to create a list of actions they want the N.C. Department of Transportation to take in the short term.
The main proposed solutions the committee will present are the addition of sidewalks, left-turn lanes, a raised median, traffic lights and periodic police enforcement on Weaver Dairy Road.
Most attendants at the meeting had close, personal connection to the solutions because of their proximity to Weaver Dairy Road.
"My backyard is Weaver Dairy Road," said Committee Member Cyndy Risku.
"The sidewalk goes through my property. I don't want (the N.C. DOT) taking any more of my land."
The Town Council will attend a committee meeting Dec. 6 to look over ideas the committee has come up with.
"We wanted to have a draft for the next meeting of the report of our short- term solutions," Committee Chairman Paul Caldwell said.
