Hunt refuses to halt land clearing
By PAM KELLEY
Gov. Jim H unt has refused to stop the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers from
beginning land-clearing operations for
the B. Everett Jordan Dam in Chatham
County even though a previously
undisclosed U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency report says the
project could pose an environmental
threat to surrounding areas.
Chapel Hill Mayor Jim Wallace, vice
chairperson of the N . C . Environmental
Management Commission, said the
planned Jordan Lake would back up to
Finley Golf Course in Chapel Hill and
flood New Hope Creek with polluted
water for up to six months of the year.
"This project is one of the leftovers
from the pre-environmental awareness
time," Wallace said. "It was authorized
by Congress in 1963. If it came up in

Board debates parking

UNC's Traffic and Parking Advisory
Board began discussion Tuesday on a
recommendation for a parking deck on
Ridge Road between the Institute of
Government and the Law School.
The board also reviewed a traffic and
parking ordinance which will change zoning
and fees in several University lots.
The parking deck proposal resulted from a
survey by construction consultant firm
Kimley-Horn and Associates. Inc. in
The board, which advises John L. Temple,
vice chancellor of Business and Finance, will
discuss the proposed deck and alternatives,
such as campus fringe lots, at a meeting in
approximately three weeks.

the committee may increase parking permit
fees in 1979-80 to $63 for the academic year
and $S4 for a full year. The increase, the first
since 1974, would cover risiiiR maintenance
costs, Arne said.
I he ordinance will increase parking fees in
the medical complex parking deck and a
parking lot on Manning Drive. The fee will
be 35 cents for each of the first four hours
and 20 cents for each additional hour. The
maximum charge will be $2 per day.
Fees were previously 25 cents for each of
the first four hours and 10 cents for each
additional hour. T he maximum charge was
$1.65 per day.
This increase will add $187,000 next year
to the general traffic and parking funds
which are used to cover all UNC traffic
"If the police are pounding on your door,
you need help then," Bernholz said. "The
students deserve prompt aid and an
