On Thursday, August 2, the University presented Carolina Commons, our plan for faculty and staff housing, to several of Carrboro's advisory boards. You can see the two site plans that were presented and a location map: Plans Location
While most of the housing is planned for the west side of Bolin Creek, adjacent to Winmore and Lake Hogan Farms, we propose several subdivision lots adjacent to the Highlands.
While our preferred plan would arrange these lots on a cul-de-sac off Claymore Road, Carrboro has a connectivity policy that would connect Claymore to the Colleton Crossing project to the north. With this in mind, we submitted two plans for concept plan review: one with this connecting road and one without.
After we receive comments from the Town on the concept plans, we will hold neighborhood meetings for feedback and input and then submit a formal application for Town approval of Carolina Commons.
