Determine if you qualify:

  • Do you have a regular office building you travel to for work?
  • Do you get to work from home or a remote office instead?
  • That’s telework!

Why?

  • You can win great prizes from local restaurants and businesses
  • You can see your environmental impacts and gas savings
  • We can calculate the impact of our teleworkers as we celebrate National Telework campaign
  • We won’t use your contact info other than to let you know you’ve won!

How?

  • Telework.
  • Track the days you telework in the Commute Calendar in Share the Ride NC (www.STRNC.org)
  • Use your points to enter prize drawings at the end of the month.

A community meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 25, to share and receive input on proposed traffic calming measures on residential streets around the Wegmans property at 1810 Fordham Blvd. The meeting will be held in Room B of the Chapel Hill Public Library.

A draft plan is being developed for traffic calming measures including all-way stop control, speed tables, on-street parking and other devices around the adjacent streets near Wegmans Property. The draft plan will be posted on the Development Activity Report webpage (see below) one week prior to the Feb. 25 meeting for review. The draft plan includes public input from a prior meeting held on May 31, 2018.

Deconstruction of the former Performance Auto Mall is underway on U.S. 15-501 in Chapel Hill to prepare for the new 100,000-square-foot Wegmans, a $30 million development with an opening date sometime in 2020. The development application was approved in October 2017.
