Celebration for completion of sewer project at Historic Rogers Road Neighborhood

The community is invited to an event at 6 p.m. Monday, June 3, to celebrate the completion of 3.5 miles of sewer service for the Historic Rogers Road Neighborhood. The event will take place at the RENA Community Center, 101 Edgar Road.

The June 3 celebration will be led by Reverend Robert Campbell, president of the Rogers Eubanks Neighborhood Association and a deacon at Faith Tabernacle Oasis of Love Church. Local leaders will include Chapel Hill Mayor Pam Hemminger, Carrboro Mayor Lydia Lavelle, and Orange County Board of Commissioners Chair Penny Rich.

The Rogers Road-Eubanks Road Neighborhood, a community that straddles Chapel Hill and Carrboro, housed the Orange County landfill for more than 40 years. Responding to advocates for environmental justice, Orange County closed the landfill in 2013. Residents have worked with community partners for many years on plans for sewer infrastructure and to create a master plan for their area.

A collaborative effort among Orange County and the towns of Chapel Hill and Carrboro helped to fund both the sewer service and establish a community center for the neighborhood.

Orange County to hose low-cost rabies vaccination clinic

Orange County Animal Services will host its next low-cost rabies vaccination clinic on Saturday, June 8, 2019. These clinics ensure that cats and dogs are current on their vaccinations, while providing pet owners with substantial savings on rabies vaccinations. 
The clinic will offer 1-year and 3-year vaccinations for $10. Pet owners will need to have a previous rabies certificate in hand to receive the 3-year vaccine. A tag alone is not sufficient. This upcoming clinic will take place on the following date:
Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Animal Services Center
1601 Eubanks Road in Chapel Hill, NC

Microchips will also be offered at this clinic for $35 each, including registration fees. Owners can choose to have a pet receive only a microchip, only a rabies vaccine, or both. Dogs must be on a leash and cats must be in a carrier. 
For more information about Orange County Animal Services, including additional clinic dates and rabies vaccination clinic requirements, please visit or call 919-942-PETS (7387).
