xx Chatham Comprehensive Plan
March 21, 2017, 08:11:13 AM by rezident
If you're interested, there is a survey over on to provide feedback on the plan.  I was told that supposedly there will be some public input sessions in April.  In looking at the survey, the questions are biased towards the Board of Commissioners' goals of limiting and significantly restricting growth.  To me, many of the items, such as Conservation Subdivisions, are an overreaction to Chatham Park.  Looking at the Parks part of the plan, Western Chatham gets left behind again.  Feel free to comment and show up to the public input sessions, but if the past is any indicator, it's unlikely the Board of Commissioners will listen to anyone outside of their own echo chamber.

Jarod from Jim's Outdoors here. I just wanted to let everyone know that we have added a good amount of new products including turkey gear and fishing supplies so please come by and check it out. Also my new neighbor Jill Wenstrand owner of State Farm is hosting a block party next Sat the 25th from 1-4. She is going to have a bouncy house, free ice cream, free face painting, and more. We are at 193 Lowe's Drive and it is a L shaped building and we are on the far side. Just look for the signs it's starting to look like election day around here. Hope to see you soon.

xx Chatham County band teacher charged with list of sex crimes involving student
March 10, 2017, 10:23:58 AM by Silk_Hope

There needs to be a rule that a teacher cannot have one on one contact with a student, when ever contact is made 2 adults must be in the room.

If guilty this guy needs to be 6 feet under.

xx Chatham Issues Temporary Boil Water Notice for Some Northeast Areas Due to Leak
March 02, 2017, 12:43:14 PM by Patty52
I just received this email from the county.

Chatham Issues Temporary Boil Water Notice for Some Northeast Areas Due to Leak
Post Date: 03/02/2017 10:37 AM

A water leak caused a drop in water system pressure earlier today, which has led Chatham County Water Utilities to issue a boil water notice for specific areas in northeast Chatham. The leakage has been isolated and repaired.

We are issuing the boil water notice as a precaution due to the pressure drop in the system, said Assistant County Manager Dan LaMontagne. We do not expect this to last more than one day.

Chatham County has already started calling all affected residences and businesses to alert them to the notice.

The affected areas are:

    Manns Chapel Rd.
    Hamlets Chapel Rd.
    Mt. Gilead Church Rd.
    Bynum Bridge Rd.
    Hwy. 15-501 south of Jack Bennett Rd.
    Several communities including: Hudson Hills, The Hamptons, Bynum, Briar Chapel, Fearrington Village, Galloway Ridge, Hamlet Grove, Prestonwood, Horizon and Moneterrane.

Chatham County will announce when the boil water advisory has been lifted. Until that time, residents in these areas should use bottled water or boil the county water before using it for drinking, bathing, dental care, making ice, washing dishes, and food preparation.

If you have questions, call Water Utilities at 919-542-8270, but the phone lines may be very busy.

xx HWY 64 Stories and Tales
March 01, 2017, 08:59:30 AM by Silk_Hope
I could write a book on my HWY 64 travels each day across the county. From people passing marked police cars to wrecks to todays incident.

While crossing the Haw River bridge I was behind a dump truck, fortunately I was not close by (200+ Yards) when the truck in the fast lane hit the expansion joint his gate opened and asphalt started spilling all over the road. I dove over to the shoulder trying to avoid driving on marbles and destroying my windshield. Fortunately the driver saw what happened and came to a stop but left the road littered with junk.

What other stories do you have for adventures on HWY 64?

xx Brake checker
February 22, 2017, 07:53:12 PM by Muddylaces
So I was driving up business 64 west to the bypass today with a white suv in front of me.   I think he was trying to teach me a lesson for tailgating him as we pulled on the bypass.   I did crowd him a bit, I was increasing speed to pull on the bypass, and I thought he was doing the same.   Instead, he chose to brake check me.    But here is the lesson pal, everything is on video these days, and while you may have had fun playing this game in the past, because the driver in the rear would be found at fault in a wreck.    Those days are over, keep playing that game and you'll find yourself a vehicular manslaughter charge.
