Local officials form paoel to address commomi cooceiros
By AMY WEISNER
Elected officials from Chapel Hill,
Carrboro and Orange County are
forming a joint planning group to
discuss specific issues, such as water
supply, land use, impact fees and tax
revenues, that all three governments
For some time the three govern
ments have been talking about
coordinating planning issues and
policy decisions," said Beverly

Mayor Jonathan Howes. MWee

few months, but we decided it must
Two board members and the
mayor (or the chairman of the board
of commissioners, in Orange Coun
ty's case) from each government body
will convene two or three times each
year to discuss general issues and then
set up smaller subcommittees to focus
on specific interests.
Cross-jurisdiction decisions, which
affect more than one city or county,
have caused some heated debates in
the past year.
"In one case the question of
water supply and quality there was
yelling and screaming and some
people even walked out," said Orange
County Board of Commissioners
Chairwoman Shirley Marshall "As
different views became heated, a need
for this group became evident."
Carrboro Mayor Eleanor Kin-
naird, Chapel Hill Mayor Jonathan
Howes and MarshaU met for the first
time in December to discuss the
controversial issue of impact fees.
Kinnaird said these fees apply
when new areas are being developed.
They must be charged to provide for
the necessary police and fire protec
tion, she said.
Because conflicting fees would
affect the distribution of new devel
opment, the leaders formed this
intergovernmental cooperative pro
gram, she said.
The smaller subcommittees will
most likely not be permanent groups,
but will meet until a specific issue is
resolved. Some groups such as
transportation, however, will operate
Marshall said, "When we met in
January to discuss the water supply
problems it became obvious that we
weren't going to get the answers we
wanted because there were too many
people and too much information."
Although the towns and Orange
County have not all officially
approved the proposal, all three have
informally agreed. They have also
indicated a desire to include two
representatives from Hillsborough.
Kinnaird said she believes the
board will be approved before the
