From UNC Press Release:

Staff members at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill will update local residents, faculty, staff and students on activities at Carolina North at a public information meeting June 27.

The meeting will take place from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the Magnolia Conference Room 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.

Carolina North is being developed as a mixed-use academic campus on University-owned property along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, two miles north of the main campus. Most of the planned construction for Carolina North will take place on or near the site of the Horace Williams Airport.

Topics for the June 27 meeting will include updates on the construction of a utilities ductbank, installation of a landfill gas pipeline and generator, and designs of a greenway, the Collaborative Science Building and related infrastructure.

UNC staff will also discuss an upcoming remediation study, to be done with the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, of the former municipal landfill on the site. The study, the landfill remediation and a change in the route for the greenway will require additional minor tree cutting on the site, which will also be discussed.

Another topic will be the approved modified conservation areas, the survey and marking of their boundaries and the search for a third-party monitor to ensure adherence to the conservation areas' restrictive covenants.

Staff members will also review the recently completed periodic assessment of the Carolina North Development Agreement, the July 2009 contract between the University and the Town of Chapel Hill that covers the first 20 years of development of Carolina North. Town and University staff prepared this first assessment, and it is available at
