    The Town Council asked staff to modify the language in the policy to reflect their priorities related to expanding the racial diversity and representation on advisory boards. The Council requested quarterly reports on the makeup of advisory boards. The Town will explore future funds for transportation and childcare stipends for advisory board volunteers.
  • Public Hearing on Updated Bicycle Plan
    Based on feedback received from the Council and members of the public, a number of changes have been made to the Updated Bike Plan to ensure the document reflects Carrboro's priorities.
