Aldermen alter creek plans

Preserving Bolin Creek is
important, but so is respecting
UNC’s plans for Carolina North,
the Carrboro Board of Aldermen
The aldermen voted to approve
a modified version of the draft map
for conservation areas in the upper
Bolin Creek watershed. The area
skirts around Carolina North.
“The time is ripe to go ahead
and adopt a conservation map,”
said Mayor Mike Nelson, who also
called the motion a “real significant
The new map has been refined
to reflect property boundaries, omit
some areas that will be developed
and incorporate suggestions made
by local nonprofit the Friends of
Bolin Creek at a Sept. 20 public
hearing, said Noah Ranells, the
town’s environmental planner.
The Friends of Bolin Creek had
presented its own conservation

of a park. Half of that overlapped

DeVine said. “Does that mean the

aside for Carolina North.
That would be the group’s big

chairman of the organization, in an
interview before the meeting.
It was stressed many times at the
meeting that the lines on the map
were not yet set in stone, and that the
map had no regulatory significance.
“It doesn’t create an enforceable
obligation,” said Town Attorney
Otto said the map should be con
sidered a guideline for the town’s
vision for preserving the creek.
“(The lines) are there to look at,
think about and modify,” he said.
Aldermen focused on the friends’
suggested line, which wiggled
through Carolina North’s footprint
The friends originally had sug
gested that the entire Horace
Williams Tract area in Carrboro
be preserved with the exception of
the northeast comer.
“I support the Friends of Bolin

conservation areas that (town staff)
outlined,” Nelson said. “However, I
don’t support including the entire

Board to weigh
for high school
BY KYLE BILLINGS
This week the Chapel Hill-
Carrboro Board of Education will
begin the process of selecting a
name for its new high school.
The school will join two others in
the area that have taken the route
of locality: Chapel Hill High School
and East Chapel Hill High School.
The question of the new school
continuing the trend now arises.
Board policy 9300 considers
three possibilities for naming new
schools: in honor or in memory of
an educational or community leader
or financial contributor or in recog
nition of the geographic locality of
The policy further states that
the naming of anew school should
involve everyone in the community.
Candidates for school names are
suggested through public forums,
e-mails and surveys on the board’s
Web site. Mel and Zora Rashkis
were nominated in 2002 and were
chosen among other candidates to
be honored with the opening of
Rashkis Elementary School.
The school board makes the final
decision on the selected nominees.
School board chairwoman Lisa
Stuckey explained the process:
“The school board eventually
decides upon the names suggested
by a chosen committee,” she said.
“This committee seeks input from
the community, evaluates the
names, then makes recommenda
tions to the school board.
“The committee seeks feedback
widely from the individuals and
groups of the community.”
Stuckey also indicated a recent
trend in school naming.
“Over the last several years, mid

ious constituencies something

He also said Bowles is joining a
system that is ultimately healthy.
“He’ll be like a doctor do no
harm at first and then build on the
strength of the university.”
Spangler said the situation was
similar when Friday left office in
1986. The system was in good shape
and all he had to do was maintain

we approach the third (area) high
school, it will be interesting to see.”
But not all in the community are
anxious to see this trend continue.
Carrboro Alderman Jacquelyn
Gist is opposed the idea.
“I would like to see it named
Carrboro High School,” she said.
“It’s been a long time since we’ve
had a Carrboro high school. We have
Carrboro Elementary, so having a
Carrboro Elementary and a Carrboro
high school would be veiy neat.”
She also mentioned that with
every prominent person in the
community who is honored with
a school in his or her name, other
deserving people go unhappy.

naming of schools after people.

spokeswoman Anne D’Annunzio
explained the reasons for a loca
tion-based name. “It creates a lot of
emotional significance, it takes out
political issues and makes it easier
to remember,” she said.
D’Annunzio said the county
school board has narrowed the name
search to three: Crossroads Middle

Woodlands Middle School.
