What is Charting Our Future?

Charting Our Future is a unique Town project designed to chart the next course; to think about what the future holds for Chapel Hill. The project will unfold in two phases. The first phase will hone the Future Land Use Map (FLUM), which is called the Land Use Plan in Chapel Hill 2020, the Town’s Comprehensive Plan.  This phase  should be complete by the end of the year, when the Town Council will adopts the new map as an amendment to Chapel Hill 2020.

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