The Community Program
An interesting site about Chapel Hill developed by the Weiss Urban Livability Program is located at: Chapel Hill and Carrboro. Its goal is to promote for current and prospective residents the "urban livability" of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro area by documenting some of the interesting, but often obscure or unseen historical, natural, visible, and inhabited features of our community.
