Creative Carrboro

We’re looking to engage the Carrboro community to solicit feedback on the creation of a Carrboro Arts and Creativity District. The Town of Carrboro is using Mindmixer to reach out into the community and gain your ideas, opinions, and comments.

Mindmixer is being implemented to provide an opportunity for the community to respond to other issues and topics that pertain to the Town of Carrboro. Questions, surveys, polls, etc. will be posted for the purpose of getting feedback from citizens, as well as, broaden civic engagement. By creating an account, anyone can become engaged with the issues involving the Town of Carrboro.

All suggestions and comments will be reviewed and used to help guide decision-making on a variety of issues. Several questions have been posted and you can access them by visiting the website or clicking on the Engage Carrboro image.
