End Apple Chill

We had drawn up this petition yesterday, and wanted to send it to you to show that we support the decision to end Apple Chill. This was a very responsible decision- thank you! We, the citizens of Chapel Hill, petition the city to end all future \"Apple Chill\" festivals. This festival has become noisy, disruptive, and dangerous as it often results in some sort of violence. Streets and the university campus are often clogged with traffic throughout the day and and into the night after \"Apple Chill\" has officially ended. Private apartment complexes and driveways suddenly become public parking lots for festival attendees. The \"arts & crafts,\" entertainment, and food focus of the festival has been overshadowed by \"cruising\" and gang-related activity. This festival has become a serious nuisance to anyone who lives here and a disgrace to our city.


This petition is sponsored by the people of Chapel Hill and the surrounding community, including citizens, students, businesses, and visitors.
