Development Plan Modification #3

Concept Plan Submitted for Campus Projects
On March 15, the University submitted an application to the Town of Chapel Hill for concept plan review of 14 projects. This is the first step in the application process for modification of the Universityís Development Plan.

Background on the Development Plan
The development plan is tied to UNCís campus master plan, the guide for campus development over the next several decades. UNC trustees approved the plan in 2001 after three years of work involving the university, consultants, town representatives and the local and campus community.

Later joint town-gown discussion helped create a new zoning ordinance and category as well as the rezoning of the main campus to OI-4 (Office-Institutional 4). The modification process for adding and revising projects was spelled out as part of the rezoning deliberations and is included in the townís land use-management ordinance.

This proposal would be the third modification to UNCís development plan since it was approved in 2001 by the Chapel Hill Town Council. UNCís development plan included details for an initial phase of new construction for the university and health-care system and specific strategies to mitigate community impacts in areas such as traffic, stormwater and noise. The first modification was approved in June and August 2003 following work by a joint town-gown panel. The second modification was approved in 2004.

In 2005, joint town-gown discussions led to several changes to the OI-4 zoning regulations including concept plan review prior to the formal application of the development plan modification.

Concept Plan Application
The concept plan application consists of a cover letter, list of projects and three maps.

The first map is simply a snapshot of projects previously approved in the 2001 Development Plan and its subsequent modifications #1 and #2.

The second map (Map 1) illustrates these same projects, highlighting the ones that have received site development permits from the Town.

The last map (Map 2) highlights the projects submitted for concept plan review.
