Waste Disposal Area



November 17, 2005


On Wednesday, November 15, the UNC Board of Trustees approved a tentative agreement that will allow the Town of Carrboro to lease 1.6 acres of university-owned property located on Homestead Road to build a fire substation that will serve the northern area of the Town including Carolina North. 

A 99-year lease agreement with a charge of $1.00 per year is expected to be finalized by February 2006.  The agreement will also have a renewal option.

“For some time, the Town has been looking for land which is becoming increasingly scarce and expensive.  The site offered by the University is an excellent location for our new fire substation.  This agreement is an example of the good working relationship that exists between the University and the Town.  The Town is grateful to the Board of Trustees and to the University staff who have worked to make this arrangement possible.  We look forward to continuing to work with the University on future projects,” said Steve Stewart, Town Manager. 

“This substation will be a beneficial addition.  It will enhance our services in the Northern Transition Area and will complement the effective fire protection and emergency medical response that is already provided for this area”, stated Fire Chief Rodney Murray.

Once the lease agreement is finalized, the Town will solicit requests for proposals for the design of the new substation. Construction is anticipated to begin in 2007 following the completion of the design and appropriate reviews and approvals.
