A Habitat for Humanity Community
Welcome to Weavers Grove!
Like our community, our brand new site is under development — check back frequently for information and updates, including dates for community meetings and other opportunities to get involved.
Note: the following information is subject to change and can be updated at any time as more information becomes available. Last updated July 1,2019.
Weavers Grove is a planned mixed income residential community for Chapel Hill. It will be located at the intersection of Sunrise and Ginger Road, just south of Interstate 40.
We’re planning on serving current members of the Chapel Hill community who make 30 to 80 percent of the area median income (AMI). We anticipate many of these residents will be employed by or affiliated with UNC or UNC Health Care. We also plan to partner with a market rate home builder to create a mixed income, architecturally integrated community.
See below for concept illustrations and an FAQ .
With Weavers Grove, it’s our mission to provide safe, stable and affordable housing to active members of the local community, while also creating tangible economic and social benefits for neighboring Chapel Hill residents.
To accomplish this, we commit to being fully transparent about our planning and design process, as well as open and available to community feedback and involvement.
Learn how you can become part of the Weavers Grove community planning process.
Safe and affordable housing is needed all around the country, including Chapel Hill. The area’s population continues to grow while the housing market struggles to keep up. This has led to a steady increase in housing prices. As a result, many community members can no longer afford adequate housing.
These community members include working families we depend on every day. Whether they’re preschool teachers, social workers, hospital employees, or senior citizens, we believe everyone deserves a safe and stable home.
The following is a high-level overview of the planning and construction timeline for Weavers Grove. Although this may be subject to change, it should give you a general idea of what the process looks like.
Note: All steps listed after the Town Council Review are contingent on the official approval of the Chapel Hill Town Council.
