CHAPEL HILL - UNC will hold a public information meeting on Carolina North from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 27, in the Magnolia Room of the Giles Horney building at 103 Airport Drive.
Carolina North is being developed as a mixed-use academic campus on university-owned property along Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, two miles north of the main campus. Most of the planned construction for Carolina North will take place on or near the site of the Horace Williams Airport.
Topics for the June 27 meeting include updates on planning and construction activities including ongoing work on a utility ductbank, installation of a landfill gas pipeline and generator, designs for a greenway and for the Collaborative Science Building (the first building planned for Carolina North) and related infrastructure.
UNC staff will also discuss a planned remediation study of the former municipal landfill that operated for many years at Carolina North. They will also provide an update on the conservation areas, the surveying and marking of their boundaries and the selection of a third-party monitor to ensure adherence to the conservation areas’ restrictive covenants.

For the June 27 meeting, free parking is available at the Giles Horney Building and Chapel Hill Transit serves the building via the NU route.
