Reduce the Density of Carolina Commons

117 Signatures Goal: 250

We, the undersigned, petition the University of North Carolina and the City of Carrboro, to reduce the density of the proposed Carolina Commons neighborhood, so it will be more livable for its future residents and more harmonious with the surrounding communities. The current proposed development of 149 units on 23 acres would be considerably denser than the surrounding neighborhoods. It would be more than 4 times denser than Lake Hogan Farms, 2.75 times denser than Claremont, and 1.3 times denser than Winmore. In addition, this development would be landlocked by surrounding neighborhoods with no direct access to a major Town or county road. The high density of the proposed development raises significant safety, environmental,and quality of life issues for both the current residents of the adjoining neighborhoods and the future residents of Carolina Commons. While we applaud the goal of developing affordable housing for the University's staff, we believe that this goal can be achieved with a reasonable, lower density development, which will be more enjoyable for its residents, and less detrimental to its neighbors. Therefore, we request that the plans be redesigned to create a lower density, safer, greener, and more livable Carolina Commons neighborhood.
