Pittsboro, NC - The schedule of community meetings to discuss the Chatham County landfill siting evaluation has been revised.

The meeting scheduled for January 11, 2011 at the Western Chatham Senior Center in Siler City has been cancelled due to a winter storm warning and will be rescheduled.

The meeting originally scheduled for January 18, 2011 at Chatham Central High School has been rescheduled to February 9, 2011.

As a result of the Board of Commissioners' Work Session on December 13, 2010, staff proceeded with scheduling community meetings to present landfill siting evaluation background, proposed evaluation criteria, and an explanation of the scoring methodology to citizens.

The purpose of the meetings is to hear comments from the public on the evaluation criteria that will be used to narrow the list of potential landfill sites. After the community meetings, the project team will narrow the list of nine potential sites down to three sites for the next stage of in-depth evaluation.

The revised community meeting schedule is as follows:

Date: Wednesday, January 19, 2011
Time: EVENING - 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Chatham Community Library
197 NC Hwy 87 N
Pittsboro, NC 27312

Date: Thursday, January 20, 2011
Time: EVENING - 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Moncure Fire Department
2389 Old US 1
Moncure, NC 27559

Date: Wednesday, February 9, 2011
Time: EVENING - 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Chatham Central High School
14950 NC Highway 902 West
Bear Creek, NC 27207

Another meeting will be announced for the Western Chatham Senior Center in Siler City as soon as staff can confirm a new date.
