The Carrboro Town Council met virtually Tuesday, Oct. 6, and took the following actions.
Truth Plaque Task Force’s Second Plaque – The Freedman’s School and St. Paul AME Church Land
The Council approved the final design and location for the Truth Plaque Task Force's second plaque project related to the former Freedman School site and St. Paul AME Church Land. Tom Tucker, owner of Carolina Car Wash, approached the Town in 2018 regarding memorializing the land, where the car wash now sits, as the former Freedman School location.
The 203 South Greensboro Project - Public Hearing on Schematic Design
The Council scheduled a public hearing for Oct. 13 to receive public comment on the 203 South Greensboro Project as it proceeds with the development of a schematic design. Learn more at http://www.townofcarrboro.org/1151/The-203-Project
Club Nova Conditional Use Permit
The Council approved a Major Modification to the existing Conditional Use Permit to allow construction of a 9,056 sf two-story (with mezzanine) building, which will replace both the existing detached club house and thrift store buildings. The proposed use of this building will remain primarily office and retail and is unchanged from the existing uses.
Racial Equity/GARE Initiative Update
The North Carolina GARE Learning Cohort is coming to an end and the real work is about to begin for the Town of Carrboro and Orange County. Although the pandemic has accelerated the town’s racial equity work, it has also created an opportunity to reimagine how to move forward advancing racial equity as a region.
The Council approved murals on two walls of Carrboro Town Hall, 301 W. Main St. One wall will have a Black Lives Matter design; one will have the Town’s Race and Equity logo. Council also directed staff to proceed with a mural project at CommunityWorx at 125 W. Main St. Learn more about this project at http://townofcarrboro.org/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=1453
