Town of Carrboro Comprehensive Plan

Reaching back. Leaning Forward

The Town has embarked upon a comprehensive planning process – the first in over 20 years.  The goal is to inspire extensive and active community involvement and to establish a framework for achieving the community’s vision, expectations and guidance for growth and development/redevelopment, and town services over the next 20 years.  Plan policies will address land use regulations and decisions, which serve as the foundation for economic development/fiscal stability, as well as the Town’s ability to provide direct services and support other initiatives.  The Town is working with a team of consultants to facilitate an inclusive, equitable, and diverse public engagement process from start to finish, including utilization of both traditional and innovative outreach methods and working with existing community organizations and resources.  


Come plan with us!
