May 25, 2006

The UNC Board of Trustees today (May 25th) unanimously approved the following resolution about the importance of community input and progress by the Carolina North Leadership Advisory Committee:



WHEREAS, Carolina North is The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's planned living and learning campus, designed to expand Carolina's multiple missions, boost innovation and redefine the University's engagement with the region and the state, and

WHEREAS, on May 26, 2005, the Board of Trustees expressed by resolution its support for Carolina North, and

WHEREAS, the Chancellor has established the Carolina North Leadership Advisory Committee to provide the University with a wide cross section of community thought on the principles that should guide the University in preparing for the development of Carolina North, and

WHEREAS, in addition to representatives from the three local governments and other community leaders, several representatives from our Board of Trustees (specifically Trustees Perry and Winston, with Trustee Burnett serving as an alternate) serve on the Carolina North Leadership Advisory Committee; and

WHEREAS, as previously identified by this Board, there is now an urgent need to develop Carolina North. Conditions have evolved from 17 years ago, when the University first identified the importance of developing this tract of land and commenced the planning process for the property. Federal funding for research is declining and facilities for public-private partnerships are needed. In addition, there are very few new building sites still available on campus. And, many of our existing buildings do not lend themselves to the kinds of faculty interaction, interdisciplinary collaboration, and government and business engagement that are needed if the University is to use its resources most effectively and efficiently to address society's pressing needs and attract jobs and economic activity to the entire state.

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Board of Trustees reaffirms it commitment to seek out and listen to community input regarding the principles that should guide the development of Carolina North;

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of Trustees welcomes the work of the Carolina North Leadership Advisory Committee and looks to that process to provide important input that will help guide the University's development efforts, and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of Trustees directs the Chancellor to report to the Board of Trustees on the completed work of the Carolina North Leadership Advisory Committee at the Board of Trustees' March 2007 meeting; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Board of Trustees directs the Chancellor to submit zoning and land development applications for Carolina North to the applicable local governmental jurisdictions no later than October 1, 2007.
