The Carrboro Board of Aldermen
Tuesday voted 4-3 to create a Neigh
borhood Preservation District Commis
sion (NPDC) after hearing supporting
and opposing comments from the pub
lic. The amendment, which would also
create a Neighborhood Preservation
District, provides for an overlay zone
that is placed on top of the existing
zone, senior planner Ann Weeks said.
The overlay zone adds requirements
for the completion of development and
redevelopment projects.
Weeks said the new ordinance gave
the NPDC the opportunity to review

Many residents, the Carrboro Plan
ning Board and Appearance Commis
sion members spoke against the amend
ment. Robin Lackey, chairwoman of the
planning board, said the board voted 4
3 to recommend denial of the ordinance
primarily because many residents were
against it.
Katherine Lindsey of 303 S. Greens
boro St. voiced opposition to the ordi
nance. "I think it's the job of our local
government to protect the quality of
life for citizens. I feel if this ordinance
passes, Carrboro will be discriminating
against personal tastes in aesthetics."

the heck, it sounds like fun'."
DeCarvalho said he had a strong
interest in the performing arts. He is a
concert violinist, has taken ballet les
sons and likes to paint. He also rows for
the crew club and plays soccer.
Philip McAdoo, a freshman from
Haw River sponsored by the Ladies of
312 Morrison Residence Hall, said he
applied for Mr. UNC because he thought
it would be a good way to get involved
and let people know who he was.
"Most of my friends couldn't see me
being this active, but I want to surprise
them and show them a different side of
me." McAdoo is in the Black Student
Movement Gospel Choir and the Caro
lina Choir and also plays basketball.
Francis George is a sophomore from
Jim Porto, a Carrboro mayoral can
didate, also opposed the ordinance.
"Without the support of citizens, the
preservation district will not work. If
the people themselves wanted it, the
board should allow for a district, but I
don't think we've generated enough
support. In conclusion, there's no way
this thing will work."
But not all of Carrboro's residents
opposed the plan. Margaret Middleton
of 105 Center St. spoke in favor of the
new district.
"I would very much like to see the
district pass. I understand it may mean
more money, but that's how I want my
taxes spent. I think if we were to ask
Charleston, they'd vote to have a his
toric district again."

Becky Mustard, council president,
said educating pledges about this issue
and discussing ways to end it form the

Fraternities also are working to stop
hazing. Sterling Gilreath, president of
the Interfraternity Council, a fraternity
governance organization, said the coun
cil has adopted a no-hazing policy in
accordance with University policy.
"The biggest problem is that those
who are being hazed are not doing
anything about it," Gilreath said. "We
don't know unless it is reported."
Donald Boulton, vice chancellor and
dean of student affairs, said he . ap
plauds any efforts made to stop hazing
and hopes the plan is successful. ,. .
"Hazing accomplishes absolutely
nothing and there is no growth in char
acter," he said. "One miscue can end
someone's life and any risk of loss;of
life is serious." :
