In the course of planning Carolina North, the new campus planned on the Horace Williams Airport property, UNC is applying for a 50 year permit from the Corps of Engineers. The Corps has responsibility for changes affecting wetland, streams and rivers.
The period for public comment ends 5 pm Monday May 9th. Any comments received will be considered by the Corps to determine whether to issue, modify or deny a permit for the proposal. Comments are used to assess impacts on endangered species, historic properties, water quality, and to assess the need for a public hearing. UNC must receive a permit approval before proceeding with construction for Carolina North.
Study the maps as there are many water courses affected by the project. The permit application affects Bolin Creek and 12 unnamed tributaries, Crow Branch and 5 unnamed tributaries, and 1 unnamed tributary to Booker Creek.
Comments can be sent by email before Monday at 5 pm to Andrew Williams, at firstname.lastname@example.org
