The Chapel Hill Town Council is thinking about integrating the Southern Village Park and Ride Lot into plans for redesigning southern Chapel Hill, which will also house the Obey Creek development.
Although the lot is not part of the plans for the Obey Creek, its development could impact the development of Southern Village and Obey Creek.
In the preliminary proposals, Victor Dover, from Dover, Kohl and Partners, said he planned to imbed the parking lot into the shopping area, and the residential and office buildings. The plan also included a pedestrian bridge between the Obey Creek and Southern Village to make the community walkable and bikeable.
But people living in the neighborhood are concerned about the development of the Southern Village Park and Ride Lot.
At their meeting Thursday, Chapel Hill Town Council members discussed the details of the lot development with urban designers and planners but did not decide on a specific design plan.
