Recap of Past Meeting  
The Council met on Tuesday, Feb. 6, considered the agenda at https://ecs.page.link/UKHe9 and took the following actions: 

  • Approved the Affordable Housing Advisory Commission’s funding recommendation for three nonprofit applications to the Affordable Housing Special Revenue Fund. The funds are approved to Pee Wee Homes ($51,100) to construct three small homes on the corner of Hill and Broad Streets that will be available for rent to individuals earning less than 30% AMI, often transitioning from being unhoused; to Rebuilding Together of the Triangle ($33,730) for  critical repairs, modifications, and/or weatherization for two Carrboro homes owned by low-income households; and to EmPOWERment ($100,000) to acquire 10 rental units off Homestead Road, considered to be part of the town’s Naturally Occurring Affordable Housing (NOAH) stock.           
  • Authorized the submittal of an application for Central Pines Regional Council’s FY25-26 Triangle Transportation Choices grant program.
  • Adopted amendments to the Town Code to establish new interment options at Westwood Cemetery as outlined in the approved Westwood Cemetery Master Plan, and to set associated fees and charges for these new options to cover costs and ensure cemetery sustainability. The plan provides for 1,672 additional burial spaces with 631 for traditional burials and 410 for natural burials, and spaces for remains from cremation and other offsite processes.
  • Amended the Town Code to change all references of E. Carr Street and W. Carr Street to E. Braxton Foushee Street and W. Braxton Foushee Street. Learn more at https://www.carrboronc.gov/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=2633 ;
