Public information meeting about 2016 Carolina North Annual Report set for Sept. 29
A public information meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 29, to receive comments and feedback on the 2016 Carolina North Development Agreement Annual Report to the Town of Chapel Hill. The meeting will be held in the Magnolia Conference Room (100A) of the Giles F. Horney Building at 103 Airport Drive. Free parking is available, and Chapel Hill Transit serves the building via the NU route.
The report is posted online, where the public can also access the Carolina North conservation areas monitoring reports by the Triangle Land Conservancy.
Carolina North is envisioned as a mixed-use academic campus on university-owned property along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, two miles north of the main campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. University and Town representatives signed a development agreement in 2009 that covers the first 20 years of development on the site. The agreement contains guidelines and standards for the development of the first 3 million square feet of a mixed-use research and academic campus on 133 acres.
The annual report lets the Town and public know what development activities have occurred on the Carolina North site in the past year and the ways in which the University is complying with the terms of the development agreement. The report is part of the structure established by the agreement for providing continued town-gown communication. The report will also be posted online at http://www.townofchapelhill.org/town-hall/news-events/current-issues/carolina-north/carolina-north.
Town Manager Roger Stancil will review the report and the public input before reporting to the Town Council on his review of the development agreement and its requirements.
Public input is welcome. Send comments about the annual report or other issues related to Carolina North at any time to firstname.lastname@example.org or write Town of Chapel Hill Planning Department, Carolina North, 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., Chapel Hill, NC 27514.

UNC responds to public comments received by Army Corps of Engineers
In the latest stage of the application process that addresses stream and wetland impacts at the Carolina North site, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill responded June 29, 2011, to citizen and state agency comments received about the application by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
On June 3, 2011, the N.C. Division of Water Quality (DWQ) requested additional information for the 401 Water Quality Certification application for Carolina North. The University responded June 27, 2011.
The University first submitted its application for a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Individual Permit and a 401 Water Quality Certification in January 2011. After submittal, the Corps made two requests for additional information, and the University responded with the required information. The application has been updated with this additional information, and the two Corps requests for additional information and the University’s responses are also included as separate items, January 18, 2011, ACE notice and UNC-CH response, and February 24, 2011, ACE notice and UNC-CH response. The complete application is available as one PDF.
When the Corps deemed the application complete, it issued a 30-day Public Notice, April 8-May 9, 2011. During this time, the Corps accepted comments from the public and considered them in the evaluation of the application.
