- Participate with Boards and Commissions - https://townofcarrboro.org/228/Advisory-Boards-Commissions Many recommendations and decisions that chart our future begin with Boards and Commissions. You can attend a meeting and provide comment, or you can apply to be a Board or Commission member. Openings are now available!
- Participate at a Town Council Meeting - The Carrboro Town Council provides a “Public Comment” portion at each Council meeting. The meetings are held most Tuesdays at 7 p.m.
- Community Conversations – The Town of Carrboro is taking additional steps to connect with people whose voices are often missing from decision making processes. Throughout the year, the Town reaches out to hear from residents on various topics via drop-in sessions, surveys, public hearings, pop-up opportunities, and listening sessions.
