town action


Chapel Hill is working to become a more sustainable and resilient community. Here, that means finding a strong and lasting balance between social, economic and environmental sustainability. We believe a healthy environment is the foundation for social well-being and a vibrant local economy. We strive to learn from our history, monitor our progress, and innovate to solve problems.

The pages below feature sustainable action across the three dimensions of sustainability — equity, environment and economy. Though many of the actions touch upon more than one dimension of sustainability, we have categorized them to help highlight the different aspects of a sustainable community.
