The Town of Carrboro was among 13 municipalities recognized by the North Carolina League of Municipalities Local Leadership Foundation in its 2022 Annual Awards program.
Carrboro was recognized with an Honorable Mention for its Town Information Center project in the Direct Reflection category. This category recognizes municipalities that have adapted their approaches or changed services or practices to address inequity in an area of concern for the community.
The Town of Carrboro began its neighborhood information network on Christmas Eve 2020 at the Rocky Brook Manufactured Home Community. In 2021, three more outdoor kiosks were installed around town. Plans are underway to install six additional kiosks at public parks, and queries are continuing with local apartment managers and neighborhood residents. The growing network of outdoor Town Information Centers advance a goal to find new methods of non-digital outreach and to build relationships by going where the people are.
