From the Archives: Perspectives on Planning, Transportation, and More

Last week, a friend asked me on Facebook to share my thoughts about housing, planning, and transportation issues in Carrboro, especially in light of Chapel Hill’s recent experience with the Chapel Hill 2020 process. Largely because of my time on the Carrboro Planning Board, several of my priorities and interests in the campaign relate to planning and transportation.

I recommended to my friend that he read a statement I coauthored last year, “Progressive Perspectives on Chapel Hill 2020.” Although the statement is primarily a reflection on issues facing our neighbors to the east, many of the values it expresses are also important for us in Carrboro. Read the full statement here.

And remember to vote in the special election on March 19!
