Future Land Use Map - Update to Chapel Hill 2020

C harting O ur F uture A Land Use Initiative 6 | C onclusion

This Future Land Use Map – Update to Chapel Hill 2020 has been a 2.5-year journey to engage community members to think about the future of Chapel Hill’s key gateways, transportation/transit corridors, and activity nodes. What started out as a refinement of the Land Use Plan in Chapel Hill 2020 evolved into this more expansive update that includes so much more than land use. This Update describes community values in the Guiding Statements and frames ideas about building form through the description of Character Types. Taken together, all of the FLUM components express a community vision for Chapel Hill’s future to the year 2050. This vision, however, is just the first step toward making Chapel Hill’s land use tools more predictable, functional, and intentional. The next steps include honing the vision expressed in this Update to provide the foundation for rewriting the Town’s Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO). The LUMO is the Town’s “rule book” that specifies where and how property can develop in the future. It will be rewriting the LUMO that puts this Future Land Use Map and all of Chapel Hill 2020 into action and completes the journey to Chart Chapel Hill’s Future.
