  1. Here is what the sign says: (I just jotted this down by reading the sign in the photograph)

    Carr Mill Mall
    Good Neighbor Rules

    1. Carr Mill Mall buildings, lawn, and parking lots are only for the use of customers while shopping and dining, and for tenants and their invited guests.

    2. Solicitation and distribution of literature or handbills is prohibited.

    3. Loitering or sleeping on benches is prohibited.

    4. Unauthorized performances and large or publicly advertised gatherings are prohibited.

    5. Dogs must be well behaved, leashed, attended, promptly cleaned up after, and watered with disposable bowls.

    6. Stay out of all trees, garden areas, and the podn. The edge of the pond can be used for seating, but not for walking or running. Do not throw anything in the pond.

    7. Alcoholic beverages can be consumed only in eating areas, and not near the entrance to the offices or the edge of the lawn.

    Thank you.

  2. “1. Carr Mill Mall buildings, lawn, and parking lots are only for the use of customers while shopping and dining, and for tenants and their invited guests.”

    Does Weaver Street Market have anything to say about this? Are people using the tables outside going to be expelled if they’ve finished dining, or are just hanging out with friends? Again, I wonder why the town of Carrboro doesn’t just close Weaver Street to cars. Create some genuine public space in the middle of town. Stop pandering to a mall management so openly hostile to the values of the town.

  3. What has happened to my beloved Carrboro? Brian, thanks for transcribing the rules, I was just about to ask for them. I really hate it when corporations treat adults like children.

  4. From what I learned during the Dancing Man Ban Carr Mill Mall management has been really hard on Weaver Street Market. Again WSM is caught in the middle. (Though it would have been nice if WSM spoke in defense of Bruce “dancing man” Thomas from the start.) Ruby and I have been hoping people would consider this when expressing their anger against this second super stupid act.

  5. 2. Solicitation and distribution of literature or handbills is prohibited.

    This prevents political literature from being distributed… a serious blow to free political speech IMHO.
