Town to host Glen Lennox workshop

Community visioning workshops for the Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood will be held from 6 to 8 tonight (Thursday) and from 3 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the parish hall of the Church of the Holy Family, 200 Hayes Road.

The workshop is sponsored by the Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood Conservation District Development Committee in cooperation with the town. Residents are asked to provide input about the future vision for the Glen Lennox area. The discussion will include ideas on desired development types, transportation, open space and ways to ensure diversity and affordability.

As a result of the development pressures it’s facing, the Chapel Hill Town Council last June set up the development committee under the town’s rules for the creation of neighborhood conservation districts.

The conservation districts add an additional framework to guide development in the area. Fourteen residents and two planning board members serve on the committee and are charged with developing land-use regulations that preserve the character of the neighborhood.

The official Glen Lennox Area Neighborhood includes the Glen Lennox apartment and commercial complex as well as the residential neighborhoods located along Oakwood Drive, Rogerson Drive, Flemington Road and Hayes Road.
