Public Meetings: The 203 Project

203 Project

The Town of Carrboro invites the public to learn more about renewed plans for the 203 Project, a public center planned for 203 S. Greensboro St.

The estimated $25 million project will house the Orange County Southern Branch Library; Town of Carrboro Recreation, Parks and Cultural Resources Department; the Orange County Skills Development Center; Virtual Justice Center; WCOM Radio; Teen Center and more. The site is currently a town parking lot across from Open Eye Cafe.

The current design process is a continuation of 2018 efforts, reflecting community input previously received while framing the new and updated synergies of the building users.

Consider attending an upcoming information event to learn more:

  • 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 24
    Virtual public meeting
  • 10:30 a.m. to Noon, Saturday, Sept. 26
    Virtual public meeting
  • 9 to 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 19
    Virtual office hours on schematic design
  • 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 21
    In-person drop-in event with designers (per safety protocols) at location to be announced.
  • Coming Up
    We’re planning pop-up events, meetings and outreach to neighborhoods and user groups for information sessions. Keep on the lookout for an event that meets your schedule or reach out to staff to arrange a time to talk.

Background

Following withdrawal of the Arts Center from the project in early 2019, it was necessary for the Town of Carrboro and Orange County to pause the design process. After a number of months evaluating space needs and interests and parking opportunities, an updated building program has been identified.

A mix of tenants is still proposed, combining together into a new building of approximately 49,550 gross square feet and parking. The proposed space allocation will result in a building that includes 44% Town of Carrboro and 56% Orange County areas.

The 203 Project is a combined effort that will offer a community-based facility that will provide opportunities for education, art and togetherness. This building will be accessible to all individuals and will enhance the quality of life in our area.
