Meeting Agenda:

Welcome and Introductions

From Plan to Practice:

Conservation Efforts in Chatham County
Brandon Dawson, Planner, Chatham County

The Chatham Comprehensive Plan was published in 2017, but now it’s time to put the plan into action. Learn how the Chatham County Planning Department is turning the community’s goals and feedback into on-the-ground policies and regulations that will shape how Chatham County grows and develops in the years to come.

Developing Pittsboro
Cindy Perry, Pittsboro Mayor
Theresa Thompson, Downtown Development Director, Town of Pittsboro

Conservation is a big topic of conversation in Pittsboro. Cindy Perry and Theresa Thompson will share an update on the work to adopt Low Impact Development Standard plans and ordinances and the Natural Resources Conservation Zoning Overlay District. Get your questions answered and hear how these tools can help to shape the future of Pittsboro.

Conservation-related Planning and Regulatory Efforts in Siler City
Jack Meadows, Planning and Community Development Director, Town of Siler City

Jack Meadows will discuss some of the conservation goals that are found in the Town’s Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) and Land Development Plan (LDP). The UDO was adopted in 1993 and has been amended frequently with the help of recommendations from the Town Planning Board. The LDP was adopted in 2017 (staff may recommend an update soon). Some of the specific regulations that will be discussed include stormwater drainage, flood prevention, built upon area, tree retention, and infill development.
