City ' '
Residents air protests
to proposed rezoning
By TOM PARKS
A joint meeting of the Chapel
Hill Town Council, the Orange
County Board of Commissioners
and the Carrboro Board of Alder
men was held last week to hear
county residents views on rezon
One proposal would rezone a
170-acre lot, known as Greene
tract, to rural transition, which
would allow the county to use the
site as a future landfill.
The Greene tract is two miles
north of Chapel Hill and west of
N.C. 86 near the county's present
landfill. The tract is owned by
Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Orange
The Chapel Hill Town Council
recommended the rezoning last
Council member Nancy Pres
ton, chairwoman of the town's
committee on solid waste, said a
search will begin for other possible
landfill sites within the next few
The town will be looking at
other sites because of protests
from residents near the Greene
tract, Preston said.
W.A. Scott, of 8410 Merin
Road, said any rezoning should
wait until after Chapel Hill's
search committee has chosen a site
for the future landfill.
The Orange County Board of
Commissioners is tentatively
scheduled to vote on the change
at their June 5 meeting.
Preston said the town is in the
process of choosing members for
a search committee.
"We hope it (the Greene tract)
won't be (chosen), but you never
know," she said.
Scott said some of his neighbors
feel the search committee will
simply choose the Greene tract,
which is the only publicly owned
"A lot of folks have the feeling
that it (the search) is just a sham,"
Scott is worried the town and
county will not act until they are
faced with a crisis, he said.
Blair Pollock, Chapel Hill's
director of solid waste disposal,
said the county's current landfill
will be full in six to seven years.
Preston said Chapel Hill would
begin a townwide recycling pro
gram this summer in an effort to
reduce the need for a new landfill.
The town has been looking at
other alternatives to landfills such
as incineration and composting,
Although Scott does not want
the landfill in his back yard, he
said the location's elevation makes
it a poor choice as a landfill.
The property is the source of
springs that supply Bolin Creek
and New Hope Creek, Scott said.
Both creeks run into Jordan Lake.
"The problem is not just ours,"
Scott said, "We are all creating the
garbage, and we have all got to
be part of the solution."
Group to present
By TRACY LAWSON
Representatives of the develop
ment group in charge of the Rose
mary Square project will present their
monthly progress report at tonight's
Chapel Hill Town Council meeting.
Whit Morrow, vice president and
executive director of the Rosemary
Group, said they planned to discuss
the future of the development project
with council members.
"People are expecting us to make
some big surprise presentation.
However, this is not the case. We are
just going to to discuss the future of
our involvement in the project."
The Rosemary Group does not
have any specific alterations for the
project in mind. Morrow said.
"We are going to meet to discuss
where we are at the moment and see
if the town council wants us to
continue work on the project. If they
don't want us to continue on this
approach to the project, maybe they
will want us to help them in some
Philip Szostack, chief architect for
the project, said he was contracted
to draw up the development's original
plans but has not been contacted to
work on alterations for the
The Rosemary Group is currently
behind in its payments to Szostack
for his services as project architect.
"We do owe the architect some
money," Morrow said. "However, we
have an agreement with him on the
payments we will make. This is not
an issue, everything is under control."
The Rosemary Group is working
on a new finance plan for the project
after sales of investment shares in the
proposed Chapel Hill Inn were
suspended because of a lack of
response from area investors.
The project was originally designed
as a remedy to the lack of parking
in downtown Chapel Hill.
The Rosemary Square project
consists of a proposed hotel-shopping
complex built above a f three-level
underground parking deck. The
parking deck will consist of 5i6
parking places, 328 of which will
belong to the town. The remainder
of the parking places will belong io
the hotel and will be open to tjie

The Chapel Hill Human Services
Advisory Board will conduct the last
in a series of meetings tonight to hear
fund requests from local service
Chapel Hill-Carrboro Meals on
Wheels, Joint Orange-Chatham
Community Action (JOCCA), Day
Care Services Association and Child
Care Networks will present funding
requests to the board.
Lyman Ford, vice chairman for the
advisory board, said funding from the
town is only' a small part of each
service organization's budget.
"This is a little bit of the money
for their budget," Ford said. These
organizations are funded mainly by
other means, such as the state of
North Carolina or the United Way.
The board will make recommen
dations to the Chapel Hill Town
Council on which organizations
should receive funding, he said.
"We're supposed to advise the city
council on human service matters,"
Ford said. "We" tell them in our
(recommendation) report why we
give our money to this agency."
After the town council approves a
recommendation, a performance
contract is created describing how the
service agency will use the allocated
funds, he said.
Before the advisory board holds
hearings on funding requests, a local
needs report is compiled which
studies special community needs,
"We give a needs report indicating
five to six categories of need each
year," Ford said.
The needs report is submitted to
the Chapel Hill Town Council and
circulated to local service agencies, he
Board member Dr. Vincent Kopp
said hearing requests by four of 14
organizations will complete the
budget series on Monday night.
A wrap-up session is scheduled on
April 17 to evaluate each service
agency that made a request proposal
to the advisory board, Kopp said.
"We weigh their relative merits and
values," he said.
Service organizations are evaluated
according to findings in the needs
report, he said. "We use that (report)
as our blueprint."
There is no limit put on funding
requests, Kopp said.
"We really don't have a ceiling on
any type of requests," he said. "It's
up to the council to decide a certain
dollar amount that goes to a partic
However, the town council usually
follows the recommendations made
by the advisory board, Kopp said.
The advisory board monitors
performances of each approved
service organization and requires
reports by each of the agencies.
"Each agency provides the board
with quarterly reports," Kopp said. ,
General and specific community!
needs are addressed each month by!
