Overview: On April 7, 2021, the Town Council adopted the Climate Action and Response Plan and asked staff to return with the option to consider adding the plan as a component of the Town's Comprehensive Plan (Chapel Hill 2020). Taking this action would be consistent with Council decisions to incorporate other Town plans into the Comprehensive Plan - specifically those for parks, greenways, mobility, stormwater, cultural arts and most recently, future land use. Adoption of the Climate Action and Response Plan as part of Chapel Hill 2020 is necessary to use the plan as the basis for voluntary conditions in proposed conditional zoning districts.


Recommendation(s):
That the Council open the legislative hearing to update the Town's Comprehensive Plan by adding the Climate Action and Response Plan, receive public comment, close the legislative hearing, and allow written public comment for twenty-four (24) hours following the closing of the legislative hearing.


Fiscal Impact/Resources: There are no fiscal impacts associated with this item.
