Downtown Chapel Hill
Where the Town Comes to Life
The mission of Friends of the Downtown is to develop and promote downtown Chapel Hill as a place for community interaction and economic vitality.
The focus of Friends of the Downtown is on economic growth, job creation, co-marketing opportunities, increasing influence with local government and increasing the awareness of Downtown Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Franklin Street is the core of the downtown, hence our website name: FranklinStreetUSA.com.
Joining the Friends of the Downtown has been a great way to expand my professional network and has been a great way to get involved with the community.
