Public Events

This study will be supported by three (3) public workshops and two (2) rounds of pop-up events. Each round of pop-up events will include one (1) meeting along the Durham portion of the corridor and one (1) meeting along the Chapel Hill portion of the corridor.

Pop-up Events — Pop-up events are informational tables stationed at community locations with staff available to educate, answer questions, and receive input. These opportunities to interact with the project team will be available throughout the course of the study. These will be drop-in events where individuals can come for as short or as long as they desire. These events will be publicized on the website and social media as they are planned.

Project Public Workshops — The public workshops will be designed to engage the public in key study concepts such as visioning, developing the community and travel profile for the corridor, and developing alternative strategies. Recently a bus tour was conducted with agency staff, key stakeholders, and elected officials. The purpose of the tour was to lay the foundation for the development of the corridor vision and goals, and to provide an opportunity for the project team to listen to the people who live, work and play along the corridor. Learn more about the bus tour.

Public feedback will also be solicited on the recommended plan and implementation strategies. Public workshops will be announced on the website, social media, and a press release. An e-blast will be distributed to the project email list. Sign-up to receive project e-blasts.

Electronic Participation

Project Website — This website will provide updated information as the project progresses for citizens to review. Citizens may also submit questions and/or comments online. The project team will review comments and suggestions for inclusion into the project vision and recommendations.
