What is Charting Our Future?

Charting Our Future is a Town project to chart the next course and think about the future of chapel Hill. The project has two phases. The first phase will refine the Future Land Use Map (FLUM), which was originally developed as the Land Use Plan in Chapel Hill 2020, the Town's Comprehensive Plan. This phase will be completed by the summer of 2020 when the Town Council adopts the new FLUM as an amendment to Chapel Hill 2020.

The second phase of the project will rewrite the Town's Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO), with the goal of improving the Town's land use tools and processes so that they are more predictable, functional, and intentional.

Project Area

The map below shows the focus areas that are being studied during the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) phase of the project. This project gives the Town the opportunity to unite previous planning efforts, examine gateways into Chapel Hill, and create cohesion among existing areas of development along these six major corridors.
