A public forum to discuss joint planning and
development in Chapel Hill and Orange County drew
umost 1 50 area residents to Grey Culbreth Junior High
School auditorium Wednesday night.
The two-and-a-half hour forum represented an initial
attempt to gather opinions from residents on features
that will be incorporated in a land use plan for 40,000
acres bordering on Chapel Hill within Orange County's
The joint planning area is composed of three tracts:
land north of Chapel Hill, including parts of the
controversial 1-40 corridor; the University Lake
watershed west of Carrboro, and the area between
Chapel Hill, Carrboro and the Chatham County line.
Under a joint planning agreement between the
Chapel Hill Town Council and the Orange County
Board of Commissioners initiated in July, planning
departments from the two jurisdictions are developing
a land use plan for the joint areas which will be
discussed in a public hearing on Jan. 14.
Land use plans are the basic objectives that an
administrative unit uses as a guideline when determin
ing zoning requirements. Orange County's most recent
land use plan dates from 1981. Chapel Hill's plan was
adopted in 1977.
At Wednesday's meeting, city and county planners
cooperated to give five IS to 20 minute presentations
on the nature of the planning process, physical
characteristics of the joint planning area, current land
uses, existing and projected water, sewer and
transportation needs and the expected population
growth and job distribution.
The presentations were introduced by Chapel Hill
Mayor Joe Nassif who congratulated the two
jurisdictions on what he called their progressive attempt
to share authority.
Nassif told the audience that such cooperation would
help to speed up the planning process which he said
had a tendency to move too slowly.
"We're all coming together," he said. "It (growth)
doesn't recognize borders. You can plan for it, or it
will overtake you."
After each presentation, residents were asked to fill
out questionnaires describing their opinions on the
issues raised by the presentations a total of 10 pages
worth of material.
Many said they were displeased with the question
naire format, adding that it limited their responses.
Henry Whitfield, a Chapel Hill resident and owner
of 23 acres in the northern portion of the joint planning
area, told listeners that he was very dissatified with
what he said was a lack of flexibility in the questionnaire

used to gauge response.
"The questions you ask on here are not the ones
1 thought should be asked," he told the chairpersons
of the city and county planning boards.
Alice Ingram, Chapel Hill Planning Board chairman,
said she was also dissatisfied with the way opinion
was being collected, but that the questionnaire was
a compromise measure.
Ingram said that she and Orange County Planning
Board chairman Alice Gordon had wanted a more
rigorous survey, but were not successful in persuading
their respective governing bodies.
"A proper, sophisticated sort of survey was not
agreeable to the governing area," Ingram said. She
added that a major objective was to include people
in the town's extraterritorial planning areas who do
not have voting rights within Chapel Hill.
During a question and answer session following the
presentations, Carrboro Alderman Doug Anderson
said that Carrboro was also interested in being included
in joint planning with Orange County, but had been
deterred by the lack of a definite zoning map and by
the prospect of town and county joint review.
"We see that it's going to be very troublesome and
difficult for that (joint review) to occur," he said,
explaining why Carrboro did not sign an agreement.

Students at UNC can once again

of being charged for unrequested
During the hectic last half of August,
Southern Bell officials received numer
ous complaints from customers who did
not sign up for "custom-calling" fea-
Donate plasma and

tures but were charged for the services
anyway. The services consist of call
waiting, call-forwarding, three-way
'calling and speed calling.
The rash of complaints at the begin
ning of the school year prompted
Southern Bell to conduct an investiga
tion. The investigation involved meet
ings with several affected students and
Dorothy Bernholz, Director of Student
Legal Services at UNC.
More than one hundred dormitory
residents were called to discuss the
services they were charged for, and the
bills were adjusted accordingly.
In a letter to Gene Clemmons of the
North Carolina Utilities Commission,
Southern Bell District Staff Manager
James Gadd said the problems were
caused by confusion of some students
as to the installation of custom-calling.
"Many customers apparently thought
the services were being offered on a one
month trial because we were able to
waive the $10.50 order charge that
applies when custom calling services are
not installed on the initial service order,"
The telephone company also is
responding to custom calling com
plaints by forwarding notices to custo
mers after they subscribe to a new
service and are confused about billing
procedures. The messages are intended
to verify exactly what services were
ordered by the student and what the
total costs will be.
According to Don Elmore, a spokes
man for Southern Bell, the company
encourages its service representatives to
convince customers to purchase the
service packages, but the representatives
do not receive any commissions or other
bonuses for doing so.

Special to the DTH
Charles Kuralt, CBS Sunday Morn
ing host and 1955 UNC graduate, is
always on the road.
But he found time Wednesday to
detour through Chapel Hill to promote
his new book, On The Road With
Charles Kuralt, at the Intimate Book
shop in University Mall.
"People who stand in line for an hour
to buy a book are awfully nice people,"
Kuralt said, "and if it's your book,
they're very, very nice people."
On The Road is a collection of scripts
from Kuralt's TV specials, which feature
him traveling across the country and
interviewing "Joe American."
"I enjoy the stories most about people
who overcome obstacles and do stub
born or outrageous things," he said,
adding that he also enjoyed coming
back to his alma mater.
"Chapel Hill's more of a city now,"
Kuralt said. "It was really a bit of a
village in my day, but my father, who
went here in the 70s and Os, used to
make the same complaint that it had
grown so much."
One of Kuralt's most memorable
experiences as a UNC student occurred
when he was editor of The Daily Tar
Heel. There were virtually no black
students enrolled at that time, he said.
"I kept writing editorials favoring
integration of the University, and that
was enough to be called a communist."
A Wilmington native, Kuralt said, "I
intend to continue with On The Road,
because if l ever stop doing that I'd have
to go back to work."
