The Obey Creek Compass Creek Committee has been formed by the Town of Chapel Hill and the first meeting was held on July 10, 2013. The work of the OCCC is expected to be finished by the end of 2013. The purpose of the Committee (from Town materials) will be to review information, participate in scheduled events and serve as a conduit to the community for the purpose of providing information, soliciting community response and fostering community participation. At the end of the process, after review of a proposed conceptual plan for the property, the Committee will provide Council with a report that identifies key issues, principles, and interests to be considered in the next phase of discussions and negotiations, to be used by council in deciding on next steps. This Compass Committee report will parallel a report by a Technical Committee that documents the results of technical analyses, a review of best practices, a summary of all meetings and workshops, and a set of ideas/concepts to be considered if the Town Council and Developer decide to proceed with Phase 2.
I have been appointed as the Residential Representative from Southern Village. I would like to solicit any comments or thoughts you might have about the development of the Obey Creek area. You may contact me by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would also urge you to stay in touch with the progress of the project by accessing the project website http://www.townofchapelhill.org/index.aspx?page=2241. As the project develops, if you have additional thoughts, please forward them along.
Thank you. Alan Rimer, 200 Overlake Drive
