CVS Public Hearing 2/26

Public Hearing:  Tues February 26th, 7:30PM, Carrboro Town Hall

Please tell the town that the citizens of Carrboro do not want a suburban style big box CVS in the Center of Carrboro. 

After a long delay, CVS has requested a public hearing on the rezoning of the properties of on the corner of Greensboro and Weaver St. in order build a 24 hour high volume CVS store and a parking lot.

The developers have submitted slightly revised plans to the town. 
You can see those site plans here and renderings here

Since these plans have changed very little, most-all of our previous concerns (and posts on this blog) have not been addressed..

We'll update the blog soon with further thoughts and information.

In order to make this zoning change to tear down Historic houses & large trees on this block, CVS must demonstrate that this zoning change advances public health, safety and welfare.
Please attend the hearing if you can.  Citizens can speak at the meeting and it would be best to comment on how this development will impact public health, safety and welfare.

And most importantly, please write your Aldermen to let them know how you feel about potential rezoning for this development and its effect on the center of Carrboro and the historic mill district.  Make sure that you specifically address the Zoning Change in your letters.  The Aldermen can only consider public opinion about the zoning change before the hearing.

Board of Alderman Contacts are here:
Include the town clerk in your emails so they are assured become part of the of the public record.

This is Not a Done Deal

The adjacent neighbors have filed a "Protest Petition" that legally triggers a 3/4 majority vote of the Alderman to change the zoning. see here.
This means 2 no votes would defeat this zoning.  We would like as many Alderman to vote no as possible.

Stay tuned for updates and if you have questions our contact is CenterOfCarrboro [at]
