Environmental Planning

"Respect for and protection of the natural environment should be integrated into the Town’s policies as a high priority in enriching the quality of life." From Carrboro Vision 2020 (Section 2.0: Development)

Environmental planning in Carrboro is founded in an appreciation of and responsibility for creeks, wetlands, trees and other vegetation, wildlife, soils, and air quality, with an emphasis on activities within the Town's purview and control. Environmental planning also addresses the regional challenge of protecting Jordan Lake and the global challenge of climate protection.
