The Carrboro Board of Aldermen will spend most of Tuesday night’s meeting on discussing possible amendments to the Land Use Plan for the Rural Buffer, a longtime cooperative planning effort with the Town of Chapel Hill and Orange County.

The low-density residential area comprised of 38,000 acres surrounding the towns includes the New Hope Creek Basin, University Lake Watershed, and Southern Triangle area.

The Joint Planning Land Use Plan for the Rural Buffer was adopted back in 1986.

At tonight’s meeting, Alderpersons will consider amendments to clarify density and size requirements for lots; and to ensure that cluster subdivisions are viable in the area.

The meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. at Carrboro’s Town Hall, located at 301 West Main Street.
