According to Chapel Hill's
December demographic report, by
the year 2025 all the developable land
to which Chapel Hill extends water
and sewer services will be developed.
That area is bordered by 1-40 to
the north and N.C. 54 and Morgan
Creek to the south.
Also by 2025, Chapel Hill's pop
; ulation w ill have more than doubled
the 1985 figure of 38.454 people, the
report predicts. The fastest growth
is expected between now and 2000.
And by 2000, the only available
land will be pieces that aren't easily
suited for development, such as steep
hills, so it will take extra time and
money for projects to occur, said

The proposal, done by a private

Odum residents oppose the plan

David Brady, a junior political
science major from Rocky Mount,
has announced his candidacy for
student body president.
If elected, Brady said he wants to
improve student life and make UNC
fun for students to attend.
"We need to have a president
who's going to worry about students'
concerns, no matter how big or
small," he said.
Getting students better seats in the
Smith Center and organizing all
campus parties and pep rallies would
be priorities for Brady.
"It's supposed to be the Student
Activites Center," Brady said. "It's
not the Student Activities Center in
row X. I was in the nosebleed section
for the State game."
Brady said Student Government
can work within constraints on prac
tical ideas. "You can't demand things
from the Educational Foundation,"
he said. "But we can sit down and
talk to them."
Most students never come in con
tact with Student Government,
Brady said. Activities like all-campus
parties can bring Student Govern
ment into every student's life, he said.
"We need to get out and listen to
people," he said. "I'm a very good
people listener and a very good
organizer. That's all you need for

Unfortunately, inflation of land
prices and property taxes has accom

The town's objective is to keep the
feeling of a small community as it
continues to grow.
"Chapel Hill's approach has been
to define an area and say, 'this is
as far as well go,' " Howes said.

"Also, 1 don't think saving 30
minutes out of a parking lot is worth
a few privileged individuals bene
fiting (from paving new streets
through Odum Village)," she said.
The Board of Aldermen called for
"immediate action" against the
Rams' Club proposal to build "spe
cial event -bac-door driveways"
from one of the three main Smith
Center lots (the F Lot, the Green
Lot and the FR Lot).
In the meeting, residents divided
into two "action" committees one
to write a position letter to University
administrators, members of Univer
sity professional schools and Rams'
Club members, and another that will
circulate a petition around the 306
Odum Village apartments.
The Educational Foundation's
report, "Traffic Ingress-Egress, Dean

suggested two possible exit routes
that would require that traffic be
moved out of the F Lot to Branson
