Past Meeting 

The Carrboro Town Council met virtually Tuesday, Nov. 17, and took the following actions.

  • Agreement with NCDOT for Jones Creek Greenway
    The Council approved the supplemental agreement with the North Carolina Department of Transportation for the Jones Creek Greenway to provide $343,200 of additional CMAQ funds to the project and to authorize $85,800 for the local match.
  • Schematic Design of 203 Project
    The Council approved the schematic design and authorized the $25.8 million (shared between Town and Orange County) project to proceed with the next steps of the development process including permitting. The current schedule anticipates moving forward to design development, permitting and construction plan preparation, so that construction may begin in the fall 2021. This schedule is anticipated to allow opening of the new facility in late 2022. The building will house the Orange County Southern Branch Library; Town of Carrboro Recreation, Parks and Cultural Resources Department; the Orange County Skills Development Center; Virtual Justice Center; WCOM Radio; Teen Center and more. The site is currently a town parking lot across from Open Eye Cafe. Review the design schematics and details at https://townofcarrboro.org/1151/The-203-Project
