Easthom wants Chapel Hill Town Council to discuss public gathering rules

A Town Council member has asked for a discussion on plans to fully enforce restrictions on future public gatherings in public spaces suchas Peace and Justice Plaza.

In a memo to the Chapel Hill Town Council last week, Town Manager Roger Stancil noted that town officials chose not to enforce rules for permits and limits on how long groups can remain on public space during the three-month Occupy tent encampment outside the Franklin Street post office that ended Jan. 10.

The Occupy movement’s departure presents “a timely opportunity for us to consider enforcement,” Stancil wrote in the memo.

In an email, Town Council member Laurin Easthom asked the manager to put the plan on the agenda for a future meeting so the council can discuss it.
