The Carrboro Board of Aldermen discussed the creation of a new Comprehensive Plan for the town during their Jan. 9 meeting which gathered support by both the community and the board. The Comprehensive Plan will outline the community's goals for the future.
“It’s not a thing that actually exists yet,” Board of Aldermen member Damon Seils said. “What we do have is a series of issue-specific plans.”
Carrboro Mayor Lydia Lavelle said the board won’t be starting from scratch — they already have several specific plans, such as an affordable housing plan and a transit plan.
“The good thing about a Comprehensive Plan is that it would pull together all the other plans in a way that might organize it better or make it more obvious what direction the town wants to go in,” Lavelle said.
While the plan doesn’t exist yet, the board is beginning the steps to make it a reality.
