Follow-Up Forum on Sample Scenarios – June 1, 2023
Following Open House #2, the consultants held a follow-up forum online to answer any remaining questions about the sample scenarios and the methodologies and assumptions for each one.
Open House #2 – May 24, 2023
Our fourth public input session was Open House #2, held on May 24th, at the Moncure School, where the consultants introduced sample scenarios illustrating 4 different potential “futures” for southeast Chatham County, based on the team’s existing conditions analyses presented at the first open house in March and public input received since the project started.
Attendees were able to view and discuss each scenario with the consultant team, including how each tests one or more ideas expressed by community members over the last two months. Conceptual maps depicted the future development pattern associated with the scenarios. Each scenario examines the likely distribution of future homes and commercial uses and the impacts of such growth, including increased needs for infrastructure/services and encroachment on valued open space.
If you were not able to attend the open house on May 24th, we still want your input and are available to answer your questions.
